JGA | Fire Engineering Consultants


Our goal is to provide safe buildings without compromising the design vision.

As a specialist fire engineering consultancy, fire engineering is what we do, not just something we do. Our solutions are design focused and respond to the architecture.

We were the fire consultant on many of the largest and most complex construction projects in Europe in recent years, including Westfield Stratford, London Olympics Athlete’s Village, Greater Belfast campus, University of Ulster and Edinburgh St James.


With more than 26 years experience and over 6,500 projects worldwide, our reputation for providing innovative, design focused solutions has made us the consultant of choice for many of Europe’s leading property clients.

The twelve Directors and Technical Directors have between them more than 200 years’ experience working at JGA.

In fact, engineers now working at JGA contributed to the fire research and drafting of codes, that are the very foundation of a fire engineering analysis.


It is possible to design a building to comply with standard codes of practice, but this won’t always result in the most efficient or best architectural solution for the building.

Fire Engineering will often be the only way of providing a safe building which meets the architectural aspirations for a complex design.

Fire engineering is not about fire protection design, or compliance with a set of prescriptive codes of practice. It is about developing performance based solutions which are both cost effective and suited to the architecture.
