We will be bringing the high levels of quality and service that Holmes Fire is renowned for. In addition, we want to open the Melbourne market’s eyes to the cost savings and design potential that performance-based structural fire engineering can bring to projects of all sectors.
Launching the expansion south will be a couple of friendly faces from our Sydney office, Mathew Freeman and Rusthi Ibralebbe.
