Principal & CEO (Fire)
Bevan founded Holmes’ fire engineering practice in the US, where he overcomes construction industry constraints with holistic fire and life safety solutions. Bevan adds value through performance-based designs—cutting costs and progressing architectural and sustainability goals. The earlier he joins a project, the more he informs risk mitigation and compliance direction to smoothly obtain approvals. He puts heart, grit, and determination into his work, which includes The Exploratorium, Moffett Field hangars, and dozens of confidential developments.
Outside of the office, Bevan coaches his son’s rugby practice, attends his daughter’s dance recitals, and fixes their stuff. He’s also an avid biker, whether earning the title of Marin’s Bike Commuter of the Year or off-roading in a faraway land. Bevan gets behind the handlebars to channel adrenaline and bring new resolve to problem solving in the fresh air.
