Fire Consultancy Specialists pride themselves on completing projects to the highest of standards. Some of the areas they aimed to gain better outcomes from was increased efficiencies. The PlanRadar solution has enabled them to do so, in addition to providing greater cost-savings for their clients. Due to the increased Fire Safety legislation brought in by UK government, FCS have been able to use the PlanRadar platform to ensure that the golden thread is weaved into all building safety information giving a tamperproof trail and peace of mind to their clients.
With PlanRadar’s platform functionality, FCS have been able to embark on developing projects which are being used to carry out retrospective and new Design & Build Safety cases. This is significant as it is a requirement under the new Building Safety Bill coming into effect in April 2023 on all High-Rise Residential buildings. This is tied in with the requirement to retain information on the fire safety measures of the building to give a Golden Thread of information through all projects.
Fire Consultancy Specialists use specifically designed ticket formats to inspect all passive fire protection systems for new design and build projects. They are currently being used on schools, hotels, designer outlets, student accommodation and so on. Furthermore, FCS inspect onsite and provide detailed reports to ensure that the new builds are compliant, and that work completed is to a certified standard.
PlanRadar allows FCS to provide high end compliance sign off which are used to verify fire door installers. Another way PlanRadar has helped FCS improve what they do is in the installation of NFC tags where required which provides clients with an asset management function, reducing the time it takes to carry out inspections and helping to reduce cost of this activity for the following year.
FCS continue to embed Plan Radar into their provision of services and complete all Fire Risk Assessments, Damper, Intumescent Paint, Fire door and PFP surveys universally within the digital platform, providing clients with an unparalleled final product and service.
