Full capability for comprehensive solution design


DEM Fire has been providing exceptional solution design for decades. Our proven design experience spans both small projects and complex fire prevention systems for apartment buildings, universities, hospitals, hotels, shopping centres, schools and stadiums.

Our award-winning designers are leaders in the fire and essential services field – and fully accredited in line with NSW legislative requirements.

Our capability spans the solution design, system installation and maintenance of sprinkler systems, fire suppression systems, detection and alarm systems, emergency warning systems and hydrant and hose reel systems… using state-of-the-art technology.

We take a holistic approach to design and while we are fast-response, we’re never quick-fix. With considered and tailored design, we deliver cost-efficient, safe and industry-leading fire protection solutions.

FPAS accredited and expert designers


DEM Fire has grown from a family business of four to a team of over 80 – and we never outsource.

Our fire safety experts are highly skilled in diverse sectors and knowledgeable of all Australian industry standards.

As per changes to NSW legislative requirements in recent years, we’re also one of the few fire protection companies with in-house FPAS Accredited Practitioners in both Fire Design and Fire Safety.

Our project team provides full design, costings and plans for retrofits or entire new fire protection systems. And we work to scale – from residential homes to major hospitals, shopping centres and apartment blocks that have complex fire protection requirements for hundreds or thousands of tenants.

Our skilled designers have the expertise and the dedication to deliver premium fire protection for every customer.

CDC management


We have worked extensively on Complying Development Certification (CDC), so we understand full criteria for the State Environmental Planning Policy. We conduct site assessments, submit concept drawings, and we work to the Building Code of Australia, Australian Standards and engineered solutions.

With CDC specialists on-site, we’re fully equipped to provide solution design that meets all council CDC requirements, and we offer our customers a 48-hour CDC guarantee. We ask that clients provide us with project information, including current plans, and we guarantee to have certified design drawings back to you within two working days.

We consider all aspects of CDC management whilst designing your fire protection plan – to deliver compliant, comprehensive and innovative design solutions.
