Retail and Shopping Centres

With a full service fire safety consultancy in one place | there's no need to shop around


Dixon Group (Dixons/Currys/PC World)

IFC have worked with the Dixon Group (which includes Dixons, Currys and PC World) over the past few years on the fire safety design of a number of their High Street and Mega-store projects which has included both new build and refurbishment issues.  Strict compliance with standard fire safety guidance for some of the larger stores would require complex, expensive and potentially unworkable fire safety precautions.  IFC provide engineering and technical support, evaluating design and value engineering options for both new and refurbished stores and develop a robust blend of traditional and alternative fire engineered approaches, to optimise the cost and operational efficiency of the stores, while maintaining a high standard of fire and life safety.
