Fire Protection is essential to the stability and integrity of a building or structure in case of fire. A building is separated into manageable areas of risk by the use of passive fire protection measures which have proven fire performance properties. These fire compartments are designed to restrain the growth and spread of fire, allowing the building occupants time to escape safely.
Our specialist team is able to provide a fire integrity survey to determine whether a building’s fire protection compartments are satisfactory to conform to current Building Regulations. Our report will detail existing fire protection measures and assets, provide condition reports and recommend areas for improvement.
The protection of the building structure from fire is an important aspect of its design but it can be impacted by building maintenance or improvement works. The fire protection of a building should be regularly assessed to ensure compliance and to prevent the premature loss of the structure, or even those within the building, in the event of fire.
