Origin Fire Team Comments
The vision of the NZ Chinese Building Industry Association (NZCBIA) is to raise building standards by providing leadership to the Chinese segment of the construction industry. It’s exciting to belong to this Association. Their vision complements Origin’s drive for improved quality in design and construction in cooperation with our Chinese clients.

Clients should expect to receive options … they should be able to really focus on a solution that works for them, one that ticks all the boxes when it also comes to considerations about space, aesthetics and price.
Senior Fire Protection Engineer, Origin Fire
Fire engineering impacts all of the building design disciplines – architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical. By engaging with experts in each of these disciplines and applying first principles, Origin Fire is able to achieve fire protection outcomes that support the project’s overall vision. We have a track record of breaking new ground and coming up with original ideas.
Managing Director, Fire Engineering Consultant
I enjoy the challenge of projects that have special fire engineering requirements, particularly those that involve children, the elderly and hospital patients. The process of modelling fire scenarios allows me to apply all my knowledge and skills to formulate best-practice solutions.
Team Leader, Fire Engineering, Origin Fire
My many years as an electrical engineer has provided the perfect foundation for emergency lighting design. I’m an excellent collaborator, which assists the consultation, design and implementation process.
