Following a similar successful project at one of our clients properties in London, they have now engaged us to carry out a comprehensive 'as built' survey of another of their buildings in the south east. This will involve a comprehensive site survey, followed by an update of the CAD drawings, and then a full Fire Strategy update by our specilist fire engineering partners. The assessment will advise on any changes that need to be made to comply with current Building Regulations and recommend workable solutions.
Commercial buildings evolve and change over time. Fire routes are modified, occupancy levels change and fire regulations are updated. This puts the onus on building owners and commercial tenants to ensure that their fire risk assessments are always kept updated.
Employers (and/or building owners or occupiers) must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments and can be carried out either as part of an overall Fire Strategy or as a separate exercise.
Based on the findings of the assessment, employers need to ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.
Please feel free to give us a call to discuss your specific requirements.
