Project
Comprising of studios, one bedroom apartments, a bistro, a restaurant, in-house cinema, a hair salon and a therapy room.

Challenges
There were issues with travel distances that required assessing.

Solutions
Taking into consideration the occupancy and the 24-hour care for residents, we devised an innovative fire strategy and utilised our expertise throughout to enable a home-like environment.

Innovation Fire Engineering undertook CFD modelling to assess travel distances and to demonstrate that Ascot Grange met the functional requirements for fire safety of Schedule 1 of the Building Regulations 2010. In addition, we provided on-going support throughout the construction process to ensure that the fire strategy was correctly interpreted.

Our innovative, holistic, fire engineering approach and collaboration with the design team enabled our client to achieve their design aspiration for a high quality care home.
