Celerity Engineering is a growing firm that takes fire and life safety seriously. Established in 2012, Celerity Engineering has grown on the strength of our relationships with our valued clients. Over the past 7 years, we have capitalized on the capabilities of new team members to expand our services in the area of building and fire code consulting, and we’re on a roll with new projects from companies like STEMCELL Technologies, AVL, and the Vancouver Island Health Authority.

The following principles are important to us. If they are important to you, then let’s talk.

Needs Driven – We work with the client to determine how fire and life safety considerations affect their design and find innovative ways to meet building and fire code requirements while minimizing impact to their design and budget.

Clients as Partners – Our investment in our clients’ projects goes beyond the hours we spend on code review and reports. We use our experience with the various jurisdictions in BC to advise and guide projects through the building permit process. We are tremendously proud that 80% of our work comes from return clients and referrals, and we are grateful for their trust and collaboration.

Safety Above All – We will never compromise our most imperative consideration of all: safe buildings save lives. What is now a ‘Project’ will soon be a workplace; a home. In-depth knowledge of Building Codes and NFPA Standards, attention to detail, technically proficient design and application of the relevant codes, and stringent review will ensure that future workers and residents will be protected in emergency scenarios.
