We can help you with:

Fire risk assessments

We can conduct comprehensive assessments specifically designed to match the size of premises identifying life safety fire risks and meeting the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.  Our assessment strategies range from a small premise such as an office or small shop to a whole site such as a University Campus or NHS Trust.  We can also review a previous assessment which has been carried out by us to ensure that any recommendations have been carried out correctly and the existing fire safety arrangements are still current.

Fire safety audits

We can conduct an independent and impartial audit on your existing fire precautions.  Our generic report format has been specifically designed after consultation with Local Authority Fire Inspectors.  Complete client confidentiality is ensured.

Fire containment

We also specialises in fire containment and passive fire protection where we will provide a quality and cost effective service.  We offer a range of services tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients.  Be confident that should a fire start in your premise it will be contained to a compartment limiting the fire damage and ensuring your staff and clients/customers escape safely.  This is especially relevant where phased evacuation is part of the organisations Fire Safety Management Plan or where sleeping accommodation is provided.
