Latent Defects

Fire Engineering

A scheduled investigation of your premises is carried out to identify all fire risks and hazards, considering the existing fire safety measures and controls in place.

As the years pass, and in the wake of tragic events such as the Grenfell Tower Fire, legislation surrounding the safety of buildings, and the compliance of their current passive fire protection measures can change frequently, meaning that a lot of properties soon become non-compliant, posing a risk to not only any individuals inside, but the financial well-being of the premises owner.

In recent years, it has become vital that all buildings should be up to date in all aspects of their fire safety, in order to give the best possible chance of stopping the spread of a fire and allowing for the all-important extra evacuation time.
