66–72 Esplanade – St Helier, Jersey

Project background

The Esplanade has been subject to some large scale demolition and construction projects and is very much an up and coming area in St Helier, Jersey.

The client had taken ownership of some property along The Esplanade and wanted to construct a new large office building in place of the multiple, smaller buildings, that were originally situated.

Our Role

Our team of fire engineers provided full design support through to building control approval. In collaboration with the design team, we developed drawings that satisfied the requirements of Jersey building bye-laws which differs from the guidance provided for the mainland UK.

Once the design had been developed, a fire strategy was produced in line with the drawings and submitted to building control. BB7 then worked with the building control officer to ensure the design and the fire safety systems incorporated within the building were sufficient.

Benefits of Service

The building was over 18m with multiple stairs and a covered car park adjacent to escape routes. BB7 worked closely with the architect to ensure the necessary fire safety systems was encased into the design; one of which was a fairly complex escape arrangement.
