ABOUT

Peace of Mind

Affinity Fire Engineering is an international fire safety consultancy borne out of a dual passion for delivering exceptional quality services and fostering a culture of positivity and growth within our team. Back in 2009 in Australia, founding members began working towards a shared goal of developing a business that could raise the bar of fire safety by providing a boutique approach to customer service, even on large scale projects.


In 2011, Roderic Jones left Australia and opened the UK’s first office in London. Since then we have continued to expand at pace, with offices now servicing Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle (Australia) – led by Thomas O’Dwyer, Garry Weir and Tom Newton - London, Bristol, Birmingham - led by Roderic Jones, Jason Seward and Jeremy Ockenden and Dublin – led by Eanna O’Tuama. We continue to grow year on year and are committed to doing so without compromising the quality of our services or the happiness of our engineers.

Address: 33 Railway Street, Rooty Hill NSW

Client: Hansen Yuncken

Value: $100m AUD

Affinity Fire Engineering undertook the fire engineering for builders Hansen Yuncken for the multi-purpose entertainment centre as an extension to the Rooty Hill RSL Club. The 2000 seat theatre was designed by COX Architecture and awarded multiple design awards. The buildings is complex in design layout and style and necessitated bespoke fire engineering analyses in evaluating safe occupant evacuation, structural fire ratings and unique fire detection services to permit a wide and flexible array of shows and performances. The development included a large auditorium with an associated fly tower, flexible seating arrangements and a large atrium function space space. Through in-depth assessment our experienced staff provided successful performance-based solutions in meeting project aesthetic and operational needs, whilst maintaining acceptable levels of occupant and fire fighter life safety.

JAYCAR ELECTRONICS GROUP WAREHOUSE & DISTRIBUTION FACILITY

January 2021

Address: 46 Eastern Creek Drive, Eastern Creek NSW

Client: Frasers Property Australia

Value: $80m AUD

Affinity Fire Engineering was engaged by developer and builder Frasers Property Australia for fire engineering of their flagship automated warehouse and distribution centre for JayCar Electronics. Having come on this project prior to Development Application lodgement, Affinity Fire Engineering worked closely with Frasers Property in providing key fire engineering advice across the entirety of the project through to Occupation of eth building. Due to the unique building operations, Affinity undertook bespoke performance-based fire engineered solutions to permit the flexibility of the design in achieving a net successful outcome to allow a portion of the building be 25m in height with fully automated ultra highbay racking along with a lower section with fully automated racking over 4 mezzanine maintenance access levels. Through the fire engineering scope and consultation with the FRNSW Affinity Fire Engineering was able to assist to develop a design that achieved the operational needs of attending fire fighters while also achieving an acceptable level of life safety for the evacuating building occupants. The success of this project demonstrates Affinity Fire Engineering’s ability to coordinate with relevant stakeholders including eth FRNSW to develop fire engineered Performance Solutions for unique, high bay and automated racking and distribution facilities.

May 2019

Address: Mainline Road, Strathfield South NSW

Client: Richard Crookes Construction / Goodman Property Services

Value: $31m AUD

Affinity Fire Engineering was engaged by Goodman Property Group to provide a fire safety strategy to assist with their Development Application for the multi lot industrial development associated with the Enfield ILC developments. Affinity Fire Engineering continued from the initial strategy to develop the fire engineering for the construction of the buildings on behalf of the awarded builder Richard Crookes Construction. As part of the detailed fire engineering assessment Affinity Fire Engineering undertook CFD fire and smoke modelling to confirm suitable life safety and fire fighter intervention was afforded to the buildings. The successful fire engineering outcome of these warehouses demonstrates Affinity Fire Engineering’s capabilities for industrial properties and use of computational fluid dynamics modelling software. Affinity Fire Engineering is proud to have worked with the full design and construction teams to bring together the Enfield ILC projects of which Precinct E and F were awarded “Excellence in Construction” awards by the Master Builders Association.

Client: Deicorp

Value: Not Disclosed

Affinity Fire Engineering was engaged by developer and builder Deicorp to undertake the fire engineering for the mixed-use residential and retail development known as South Village. The South Village incorporates seven residential towers located over multiple retail compartments which then all unite via a combined multi-level basement car park.  Affinity Fire Engineering developed the performance base Fire Safety Engineering solutions to provide a cost effective, low risk and flexible design including the rationalising of fire ratings, occupant egress, fire brigade intervention and retail smoke hazard management systems. The size and complexity of this project demonstrates that Affinity Fire Engineering can successfully undertake bespoke fire engineering solutions for the largest of mixed- use development projects.
