With over 50 engineers, our design capability and fire safety knowledge and experience is unparalleled. All of our fire engineers have specialist post-graduate training in fire engineering and many are also Accredited and Chartered Professional Engineers.

We have come a long way, with great success. From beginnings fuelled by the vision and enthusiasm of our co-founders Hamish Maclennan and Martin Feeney, and the support of Holmes Consulting Group, the small, powerful company of Holmes Fire & Safety was established in 1994. We have since expanded; to Sydney later in 1997, San Francisco in 2009, Los Angeles in 2016 and throughout New Zealand’s main centres. Today’s company, Holmes Fire, continues to prosper, firmly established as a world leader in fire engineering design.
