What Olsson do as a business
Olsson Fire & Risk Consulting are a specialist fire safety engineering company, founded in 2016. We provide a wide range of fire safety advice to our clients, including new building designs, refurbishments and fire risk assessment and safety management advice for existing buildings. We have 25 staff, with offices in Manchester, London, Oxford, Edinburgh, Glasgow and of course Bath. Clients include Google, the All England Lawn Tennis Club, the RFU at Twickenham, Laing O’Rourke and many others.
What made you choose Bath as your next UK location
We have offices where our staff want to work, being independent gives us this flexibility. Andy Passingham was based in Bath, where he was previously leading the fire engineering team for Buro Happold consulting engineers before joining OFR in 2017 to found the Bath office, serving the South West and linking closely with our London team.
Why did you decide to move to Cambridge House?
We previously had desks in a shared space in a converted shop, which was fine for starting up, but did not have room for expansion…and the WIFI wasn’t great! When Cambridge House opened we took a larger space to allow our longer-term plans for expansion to be realised. It also allows us to host clients in a more professional environment, with excellent meeting facilities. It is also very well located close to the train station which is important for us.
