With 30 years of experience built up a considerable number of references.


There are several different types of references, ranging from articles in journals and presentations at seminars and conferences, to heavier scientific publications. There are also many important reports that have been used as reference in our further work. Other references are a number of developed measurement systems, technical solutions and products, which are installed and in use. A number of clients are also included as a natural reference.

We are quite proud of our contribution to the Norwegian regulations. Guidance for design of thermal and mechanical smoke ventilation, Government Building Technology and Administration (BE), HO-5/89. Last revised edition is HO-3/2000.


The planning and Building Law set requirements for buildings in Norway. Under this law includes regulations by the technical requirements for construction, also called TEK10. Guidance to this regulation specifies performance requirements for pre-accepted solutions. Where this guidelines affecting thermal and mechanical smoke ventilation measures, it refer to the theme manual HO-3/2000 for details.


Guidance HO-3/2000 contains a lot of theory on the development of fire and smoke in buildings that we collected from the best communities in the world. This guide can therefore be used for much more than just smoke ventilation. Anyone who wants to be good fire advisers should read and understand the contents of this guide.


We have participated and contributed with presentations at many international seminars and conferences. We have also written popular articles in local journals, and published scientific material in renowned international journals.
