Fire Safety Plans


Cantec’s Fire Safety Planning division has merged with Technical Fire Consulting Inc!

Technical Fire Consulting, was established in 1998 by the industry leader himself Bob Foster. Over the last two decades, the leading fire safety planning company exceeded the minimum standards that were laid out by the Fire Prevention Officers’ Association of British Columbia recommendations and fostered dynamic relationships with many of the Authorities having Jurisdiction across Vancouver Island and beyond. Through this close coordination with respective fire departments, came trust and improved quality of planning.

We are excited to preserve the quality of work and build on our established relationships into the future.

Fire Safety Plans

Cantec offers comprehensive BC Fire Code consulting, and fire safety planning to meet section 2.8 of the 2018 BC Fire Code for new and existing buildings.

We work closely with contractors, developers, owners, and the local authorities having jurisdiction to create our industry-leading fire safety plans.

What sets us apart is our ability to design and create evacuation graphics and floor plans using our computer-aided drafting software. This allows us to work directly with the architect issued for construction drawings to ensure the most accurate, and scale floor plans.
