Within recent years, fire regulations are under tight scrutiny and being reviewed with more stringent regulations being put into place for buildings and new developments. As a result of this, it is vital that when designing and constructing buildings, you are compliant to fire regulations safeguarding both your building and future occupants.
Our work within the construction sector can broadly be split into two areas, providing solutions for the construction site itself. The building is being developed, ensuring it is designed, built and maintained with compliance.
Why Fire Protection in Construction?
During the construction of a building or it’s refurbishment, many high-level risks must be accounted for to ensure both the project and your workers’ safety. Tools and equipment are being used which may present a considerable hazard including electrical cables, flammable gasses and dry wood.
To minimise a fire’s risk, a comprehensive fire survey must be undertaken to provide a holistic fire strategy to protect all stakeholders working on the construction site. Depending on the projects’ context, including its’ design and duration, it can encompass both active and passive fire protection solutions.
Alongside providing an effective fire strategy for the construction site, considerable thought must be given to designing, building and maintaining a holistic fire strategy ensuring maximum protection for the building and all occupants.
In consulting during your project’s early stages, you can ensure your building will comply with leading safety regulations whilst not compromising its design by creating your solution post-build.
Why Security in Construction
Construction is often a hotspot for stealing costly tools and equipment, trespassing and other criminal activities.
Having a competent security strategy in place ensures highly accurate monitoring of the site and assets, intruder detection and barriers preventing access if necessary.
