I can provide you with a range of services associated with your property or development project;
Preparation of applications
for a fire safety certificate. Any proposal to build, extend, alter or change the use of a building, other than for a few exceptions, will require a fire safety
certificate be applied for and granted before works can commence. To prepare this requires detailed knowledge of the various fire safety
regulations, relevant guidance documents and building practice. The supporting documents with the application will demonstrate that the design is in accordance with Building Regulations in regard to fire safety.
of Compliance of the constructed building - Ancillary Certifier.
The FSC is really a certificate of design. For any project that
requires an FSC then it will also need somebody to inspect the works during construction and certify compliance on completion. This role is called the 'Assigned certifier' and is a legal requirement, as well as good sence and will further protect your
investment. However, I do not perform this role.
Fire safety management. I can help you develop a fire safety management plan for your premises, including a simple management structure with various essential roles assigned,
develop an evacuation strategy for the building, provide training for personnel and help you to document the plan in a Fire Register.
Access Certificates. Its surprising how many of us are not perfect. Since Jan 2010, any building project requiring a fire safety certificate also needs a Disability Access Certificate. The aim of this is to facilitate access and
use of buildings to the wide range of ability levels in the community, with particular emphasis on those with impairment of mobility, vision and/or hearing. From 2012, development of existing buildings, such as a change of use, extension or material alteration,
will be required to improve the accessibility to the existing building as well as to the new works.
