We work with investors, designers, developers and end users to de-risk projects and ensure life safety, property protection and business continuity. We use science, engineering and risk management principles to deliver operationally efficient and cost effective solutions.
We are the guardians of fire safety for a project, ensuring traceability of decision making and a golden thread of information, all the way from concept, through design, construction and handover, to occupation.
We ensure safety and compliance without compromising architectural ambition and functionality. We provide ongoing support and assurance that fire safety is embedded throughout the construction process.
We clarify project aims be they, statutory compliance and life safety through property and asset protection to environmental or reputational damage limitation. Our input to the project brief will help establish the ground rules.
We interpret codes and standards and apply fire engineering from concept strategy, plans review and planning application to detailed design.
We assist the wider design team in setting the minimum standard and appropriate specification for active and passive fire safety systems. Asking the right questions of suppliers during bid phase and helping with selection. In this way a single focal point is created for all fire related information.
Through construction our specialist surveyors monitor quality and provide assurance the fire strategy is implemented on site. By inspecting and assessing the fire protection measures, during construction and installation against the relevant fire strategy, we provide assurance that the installation and build standards are adequate.
We observe the testing and commissioning of active systems prior to handover in order to provide you with assurance that the approved design fire strategy has made it to the final product.
We undertake pre and post occupation fire risk assessments, deliver training, and ensure end users are sufficiently equipped to manage and operate their facilities effectively. We specialise in strategic risk management for multi-site portfolios.
Helping occupiers meet the statutory requirements of the legislation by carrying out fire risk assessments and applying our extensive knowledge of fire risk management to ensure efficient and effective governance of fire risk. We were the principle authors of PAS 7: 2013 which has now transitioned to BS 9997: 2019, and we are a registered company as part of the UKAS accredited ‘BAFE Life Safety Fire Risk Assessment SP205’ scheme.”
Throughout their life, buildings might undergo a number of changes that influence fire risk. We can support you when considering capital investment, such as an extension, refurbishment, or change of use, and when there are material changes in operations.
