What is fire engineering?
Fire engineering is where consultation takes place in the planning stages before any potential building works commence. Many design teams and clients will appoint a fire safety consultants to ensure that a development project meets the functional requirements of Schedule 1 of the Building Regulations through the development of an alternative fire safety engineering approach.
Do existing buildings have fire safety in mind?
Most modern buildings are now designed with an element of Fire Engineering and may require increased levels of fire risk management.
Sadly many Building Control Bodies are not enforcing Regulation 38, which requires that; “The person carrying out the work shall give fire safety information to the responsible person, not later than the date of completion of the work, or the date of occupation whichever is earlier”.
