Educating Industry on Passive Fire Systems in New Zealand

Educating Industry on Passive Fire Systems in New Zealand

Updated: Oct 30, 2019


The Connect Group's FireProtect team are working to change the stigma around Passive Fire Protection, from one of a costly afterthought to a well-planned and efficient specialised trade.


Around 50 industry professionals, ranging from Quantity Surveyors to Site Managers, joined us on February 21st to discuss the issues and complications around the install of Passive Fire Protection systems.




Over the course of the seminar, we ran our guests through the varied scenarios that can occur on site in regards to Passive Fire. Our goal was to better equip engineers, site managers, project managers and quantity surveyors, with knowledge on how to save their projects time and money with Passive Fire installations and in turn, adding value to projects through a collaborative compliance-based approach.


FireProtect offers the industry one company to contact from the design stage through to installation and application of passive fire protection products - if you'd like to know more about what we can do for your project - contact our Quantity Surveyor, Ondrej Bocan.

Thank you to our sponsor, Potter Interior Systems.
