Fire risk


We work with developers and homeowners to provide them with fire strategies, fire risk assessments and CFD analysis to provide a holistic view of safety systems to gain sign-off by approving authorities.

Highway, Traffic &


As highway and transport specialists we work with developers providing them with the in-depth expertise required to take a site from pre-acquisition to planning consent.

Vemco Consulting is an engineering company that specialises in assisting developers (large and small) to gain the necessary approvals for their development through the planning and building control process. We have expertise in three core specialisms; namely:

Fire Engineering
We assist companies and individuals to gain the necessary approvals from Building Control/approved inspectors and the fire service. From residential to school developments and much, much more, we can help you devise a fire strategy to satisfy the requirements of nationally recognised codes. If required, our experienced engineers are well-versed in the engineering tools that lead to the design of non-prescriptive solutions to fire safety problems in buildings. Or perhaps you need an assessment of whether or not the design of your external walls meets the required standards. Whatever your need, we can develop specialist reports in support of your development. For more information click here

Highway Engineering
If your development needs a new road access, the chances are that the local highway authority will want a say in how it is designed and built. Our engineers carry out designs in compliance with Design Manual for Roads and Bridges and/or Manual for Streets to gain approval under Section 278 of the Highways Act 1980 and other relevant legislation. Swept path analysis, access layout (including footways) drawing with horizontal geometry details up to the highway boundary, horizontal visibility envelopes and vertical visibility envelopes are all part of the package. If it can’t be done, we’ll tell you early so that you don’t waste money. For more information click here

Traffic and Transport Engineering
Our work in this area is very broad. In some cases, we support developers by producing a detailed Transport Assessment (to understand that impact your development will have on surrounding roads). In other instances, we are asked to model a proposed junction with nationally recognised industry software. In yet other situations we might be asked to carry out a road safety audit. Be assured that, whatever your traffic/transport need, we have the ability to design it and develop a technical report for it. For more information click here
