Ascot Grange is now officially open! This is one of the many successful projects where Innovation Fire Engineering have worked in conjunction with Signature Senior Lifestyle and the design team. Comprising of studios, one bedroom apartments, a bistro, a restaurant, in-house cinema, a hair salon and a therapy room, our client wanted to ensure that Ascot Grange was a comfortable residential care home with a home-like environment.
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, safe 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 team work enabled our client to achieve their design aspiration for a high quality care home.
