Fire Safety Value

The primary consideration for educational facilities is ensuring that the balance between the architectural vision and fire safety are maintained, such that one does not have a detrimental impact on the other.

Risk Profile

Schools are often attractive targets for a variety of crimes, including from the students at those schools themselves. In recent years, we have also unfortunately seen many tragedies occur at these sites internationally, related to terrorism concerns. Given this context, it is vital that schools be appropriately equipped with regards to security.

Our Fire Experience

Lote has been involved with early learning centres, schools, and unviversities ensuring that the architect's vision is maintained whilst maintaining a level of fire safety that is compliant with the Building Codes of Australia.

Our Security Experience

Lote has worked with a variety of schools and educational policy-makers, including Australian government bodies, to find the right balance and avoid over-securitising. We are committed to developing the most effective and unobtrusive methods, in order to provide safer schooling environments where children can develop into the leaders of tomorrow.
