Fire Protection Programme


Top floor of building following fire damage

Many of the projects we undertake are required to be scoped out. This means that we have to assess the facility, its character, fire risks, operations, fire and life safety systems etc. We also listen to what plans there are to adapt, refurbish or extend the property. For large sites we often have to look at a site- wide strategy for fire protection/building code compliance. This may include an assessment of the water supply for fire protection, access for firefighting, site wide fire detection and communication systems, means of escape and other issues. Many sites are at least in part dependant on government funding and as such, both economics and conservation play a key part in the strategic solution for a particular project.

For this reason we will include a cost estimate for the proposed work as well as our anticipated fees to manage the project.
