Complex buildings and underground or industrial environments need highly specialised smoke control. The more complicated the system becomes, the greater the need for effective controls.

Make sure that people, property and assets will be safe.

We’ve designed, engineered and installed controls in some of the most challenging environments in the country, for clients including Crossrail and Landsec. Our controls are the first choice when standard solutions and general smoke control system providers aren’t enough.

  • Intelligent control when it really matters

When they receive a fire signal, our controls will instantly take charge of the building’s HVAC and fire safety systems to help get people out and protect property. Our controls follow strict protocols on how they should react to multiple alarms and fire system signal inputs.And should the fire and rescue service need to override the system when they’re fighting the fire, our interface makes this critical job simple.

  • Above and beyond compliance

Our stringent quality assurance process and design control mean that our controls (their design, software and hardware) meet, and often exceed, the testing certification process and all necessary standards for life-safety-critical control systems.  

  • Outstanding fault-monitoring and support

We set up your control system so it’s constantly monitored, and immediately alerts operators if something goes wrong. They’re simple for your operators to test, and with our first-rate servicing and maintenance, we make sure the system keeps running perfectly.

  • Future-ready controls

As building use, legislation and technology changes, our controls are ready to adapt. Modular systems and PLC software allow you to modify and expand the system with little or no disruption.

Put your smoke control in expert hands

With over 20 years of industry-leading experience, our engineers are trusted by contractors across the UK to design, commission and install even the most complex of smoke control automation, particularly in buildings more than ten storeys high or two levels below ground. Our rigorous approach makes sure your controls are fit for purpose and that the entire project runs like clockwork.

  • Unrivalled expertise

    Our engineers are renowned in the industry for their intuitive grasp of higher-complexity control logic. We help clients like Colt, NG Bailey, Laing O’Rourke, Crown House Technology and Balfour Beatty build control systems for challenging environments.

  • Precision planning

    Nothing is left to chance. We plan each part of the project meticulously, right down to line-by-line, wire-by-wire, part-by-part specifications. So you know exactly what you’re getting and what will happen, when.

  • Smooth install

    We know you’ve got a schedule to meet, so we make the install process as smooth as possible for you. To make sure there are no disruptions, we collaborate with all the other contractors and test every single item before it arrives on site.

  • Exacting standards throughout

    High-level documentation, robust training, off-site assurance testing and adherence to all necessary energy and safety legislation – all give you, and your client, peace of mind that you’re compliant, safe and ready to go when the project is handed over.

Let’s get your smoke control system under control





London Crossrail – It’s all Under Control

Crossrail is one of the UK’s most challenging engineering feats to date. And as you’d expect, the complex underground environments require complex, precise and robust smoke control systems.

East Pool Mine – It’s all Under Control

At the heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site sits East Pool Mine. The former copper and tin mine closed in 1954 but has now taken on a new life showcasing Cornwall’s dramatic mining history under the stewardship of the National Trust. The Industrial Discovery Centre resides in several large, granite buildings dating back to the 1920s and the heating control system had become outdated, inefficient and no longer fit for purpose.
