OFR Consultants is a dedicated fire engineering consultancy, founded in 2016.  We have grown to an independent team of 60, with offices in London, Manchester, Leeds, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Oxford and Bath. 

Our approach is based on the conviction that a clear opportunity exists to deliver high quality, tailored fire safety solutions for clients.

 The practice was created to focus solely on fire engineering services, allowing us to address the needs of our clients, unencumbered by the diverse needs of the large multi-discipline, multi-faceted corporations that we came from.


OFR Consultants is owned wholly by the people who work with us.  This independence allows us to follow our own path with complete flexibility and gives us an ability to proactively respond to the market around us.

Since inception, OFR has grown rapidly and we are able to confidently take on any scale of project, large or small, in any location. Our primary focus is design and construction projects, however, we are also keen to give back to the fire safety community and actively undertake research and contribute to the development of the fire safety industry at the highest level.  We also work closely with clients to help them manage their building portfolios.

We offer the full range of fire engineering consulting services, as illustrated below.
