Fire & Arson Investigations

Like all other arts, the Science of Deduction and Analysis is one which can only be acquired through long and patient study. (Sherlock Holmes in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s )

Having the right technical expert is critical to the successful outcome of fire-related litigation. Fahrenheit Global’s professional staff of fire protection engineers are uniquely qualified to provide their clients with a distinct technical advantage in the fire investigation and failure analysis process. Our engineers have Master’s degrees in Fire Protection Engineering, and Fire & Arson Investigations. In addition to fire investigations, our engineers are engaged in professional practice where they remain on the cutting edge of fire protection engineering through project work that includes designing fire sprinkler and alarm systems, providing code consulting services, performing computer fire modelling, and presenting research findings at professional conferences. Our investigations utilise the framework of NFPA 921: Guide for Fire and Explosion Investigations in conjunction with our experience in design and analysis in accordance with the latest codes, standards, and accepted professional practices.

Fire Investigations of origin and cause of fires or explosions are often intricate and complicated. Fahrenheit’s experienced fire investigation team is highly adept at putting together the many pieces of the puzzle that remain after a fire or explosion. Our fire investigators are experienced with analysing fires of all sorts – from small fires to complete losses consisting of nothing more than ash remains.

Our team of forensic experts is skilled at not only determining the origin and cause of fires and explosions, but with uncovering the key facts necessary to determine if arson may have been involved. Whenever an investigation of property loss is involved, it is critical to have fire investigators who are skilled at finding the details of these sometimes very complex incidents. At Fahrenheit Fire Engineering, we have the team of experienced experts to help you uncover the whole story.
