Fire precaution drawings form an essential part of the overall fire strategy and management for a building.
To meet the legal requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, building owners and occupiers must ensure that the fire safety precautions in their buildings are provided on a drawing, adequately managed and maintained.
The Fire Safety Order is a Risk Assessment based Approach where the responsible person must decide how to address the risks identified, while meeting certain basic requirements.
Addressing and dealing with the risks almost always requires drawings.
NIFES can provide fire precaution drawings using industry standard symbols and assist with asset management and production of drawings required for building control submissions.
NIFES professional, qualified and experienced surveyors have an understanding of all fire systems.
