What was the brief/client expectations?
Following a detailed Fire Risk Assessment being carried out which identified many fire compartmentation issues, we were asked to carry out a comprehensive and intrusive survey of the College Hospital to establish:
- In line with the fire compartmentation strategy of the building, we were engaged to survey the building and report on all fire breaches in the building infrastructure, take photographic evidence and report on the materials to be used to make the fire compartmentation strategy compliant.
- The location, status and condition of the horizontal and vertical fire dampers.
Were there any challenges and how did you overcome them?
- Working at height and in restricted areas
- Working out of hours – 20:00 to 04:00
- Working above the false ceilings
