Kamal Adhikari

Senior Fire Systems Designer

As a Senior Fire Systems Designer with DEM Fire, Kamal Adhikari designs sprinkler systems, alarm systems, emergency warning systems and fire detection systems. One of our newest team members, he’s also FPAS accredited as a Competent Fire Safety Practitioner (CFSP).

“I work across various projects on areas including fire hydrant, fire hose and sprinkler system design,” he says. “My experience spans fire structure and fire system design in hospitals, residential, critical facilities, defence, high rise properties and universities, plus project management and commissioning.”

While he has ten years’ experience in fire prevention working for companies and as a consultant, his initial career choice was something else.

“I completed a degree in architecture before moving into system design and completed postgraduate studies in fire safety engineering. I enjoy looking at the connection between every part of a building such as fire and electrical. I think having that background helps me design better fire systems, and serve our clients better.”

Kamal developed a love of trekking in his native Nepal, and now he enjoys bushwalking locally, riding his motorcycle or spending time with his two kids. He says his kids keep him young, just as learning does.

“I believe it’s important to continuously strive to improve yourself by learning new systems or technologies for instance,” he says.

It’s this commitment that ensures our customers received the highest quality fire protection solutions.
