The importance of fire consultancy services to your building project

When it comes to a building project, there are a host of factors you need to think about. One of those aspects of a project that can often get overlooked is fire safety. During the construction stage of a building project, it’s essential that the principles of fire safety are maintained throughout to ensure you avoid any expensive retrospective action.

Just because a property or site is undergoing building work, it doesn’t stop fire regulations from needing to be maintained. From the start of a project, during building, once the property is completed, fire safety is a legal requirement.

Our Fire Consultancy Services monitor any design and construction stage of a project to make sure nothing will have a negative impact on the fire system’s efficiency. The team at Drax Services are able to produce a construction site fire safety risk assessment to help outline measures needed to ensure life safety and property protection during the building stage.

This is beneficial for a number of reasons, especially where temporary conditions are complex, high-risk materials are being used, or where a phased construction and occupation is required. We can also produce regular updates for fire safety strategy during the construction stage to reflect any ongoing alterations on site. This supports continued consultation with the relevant authorities as well as providing a route to an as-built fire safety report when the project is complete.
