Carry out inspections on existing buildings and provide advice and information in regards to practical fire upgrade solutions that suits the needs of the building and it's occupants.
BCA Compliance Reports
BCA reports are often required by Council as a condition of consent. BCA reports may also be required prior to submission to Council to ensure your proposed plan can comply to Code as designed. Having an experienced building professional carry out your BCA assessment during design may save you considerable time and money during approval and construction phases.
Fire Orders / Upgrades
Local Council can issue fire safety orders to building owners, directing them to undertake improvements. The order will list and specify the reasons for issuing the order, what needs to be done and a deadline. The building owner is responsible for ensuring the order is complied with, while tenants may have certain legal obligations under various lease/contract arrangements.
Annual Fire Safety Statements
Every 12 months an annual fire safety statement must be supplied to the Council certifying a competent fire safety practitioner has inspected the building and found that all required fire-safety measures are compliant with relevant standards.
