    Involves early engagement with architects and designers to review their specifications and fire strategies. This helps to prevent issues and conflicts in the construction stage.
    Stage 2 – Construction

    During this stage of the Golden Thread, regular inspections of workmanships are undertaken to ensure the installations are completed in line with designers/architect’s details, and installed as per manufacturers tested solutions.

    Stage 3 – Pre-Occupation

    Involves the review of all commissioning certificates. This ensures that everything is approved in time for pre-occupation fire risk assessment, along with all documentation required for regulations. This would then be handed over to the Responsible Persons after the building is complete.
