Where it began
Founder Ryan Phillips created Smart Fire with one simple rule in mind: keep it simple.
During his role as a career Fire-Fighter with the NZ Fire Service, Ryan Phillips completed his Level-4 Certificate in Carpentry.
After his time with the NZ Fire Service Ryan took on a role as Building Review Officer with Hamilton City Council, here he developed his knowledge of the NZ Building Act and Code.
Ryan naturally progressed back to his passion of Fire Protection, working in Fire-Safety Design and is now sharing his enthusiasm and experience with you and your projects across New Zealand with Smart Fire.
WHERE WE ARE NOW
In 2019, Smart Fire moved the Waikato office to Hamilton Central.
Also in 2019, Smart Fire achieved a Hawkes Bay satellite office, allowing expanded resources and coverage – ultimately providing a better experience for you, the client.
WE ARE FIRE-SAFETY DESIGN CONSULTANTS.
Smart Fire was born to satisfy the need of accurate and timely fire-safety design.
We design fire protection in buildings for life safety, property protection and firefighter
safety – which we are passionate about.
COMMUNICATION IS KEY.
Smart Fire liaises with key stakeholders to ensure a precise design to mitigate errors during consent and construction.
We operate fire-safety engineering practices and have a high standard of quality that earns us our moral reputation.
