Peter McGettigan

Peter is an Associate Director with BB7 with nearly 20 years’ experience in the Construction Sector, specialising in fire safety engineering. Peter recently joined BB7 from a multi discipline company in London where he worked on some of the most complex, high-profile and unique schemes in the United Kingdom.

Peter holds a BSc (Hons) in Fire Engineering from Letterkenny Institute of Technology and successfully completed a MSc in Fire Engineering & Explosions at the University of Leeds in 2018 while working full time.

Peter has performed as a lead fire engineer on projects for numerous clients in the construction industry. His experience includes following projects through design, procurement, construction, turnover and close out. He has extensive experience of consulting with the Fire Authority and through his knowledge of the Building Regulations is able to reduce approvals and compliance risks.

Peter’s passion for construction led him into fire engineering. With invaluable site experience, he has developed an in-depth understanding on how buildings are constructed.

Peter’s approach is based on an understanding of design objectives that include life safety, business continuity and property protection. He is experienced in assessing and designing fire safety engineered solutions for a range of different buildings, ensuring the financial, aesthetic, and functional objectives of each scheme are met where possible, whilst maintaining a satisfactory level of fire safety. Peter has improved his knowledge and experience with Computer Fluid Dynamic Smoke Modelling to assist with this process which has provided him with a solid grasp of fire engineering principles.

Peter is an Associate member with the Institution of Fire Engineers and is in the final stages of his Chartered Engineer application.
