Façade Combustibility Reporting

Façade Combustibility Reporting

What We Offer

We provide specialist consultancy on façade safety. Whether your building is cladding, glazing panels, render or brick slip, each building has its individual risk potential. We investigate and provide bespoke reports with impartial information about the risks of your façade and façade sub-structure.

A common concern is fire risk. Combustible building materials or poor-quality construction allow for fire to spread rapidly.

Combustibility reporting allows you to be fully informed of the present risks in your building. We provide testing and reports to evaluate the flammability risk of your building(s). This includes BRE testing of the materials used for the façade(s). We assess the construction to highlight how effectively prepared your building is at preventing the rapid spreading of fire.

 

Common Concerns

Combustible Materials

 

Both non-compliant materials and high-risk materials, may be found in both older and more modern buildings. Other common materials such as wood and polystyrene, in the wrong place can increase the potential damage caused by fire.

We check your cladding and glazing materials to assess if they meet fire safety regulations. We provide advice where necessary, to reduce the risk of fire catching and spreading in your building.

Poor Construction

 

By looking behind cladding and inspecting glass walling we can identify the quality of the construction of your building. Items such as ill-fitting fixings, gaps in insulation or inappropriate materials within the façade can be found. We carry out a thorough inspection and provide recommendations to fix any safety concerns.

Building construction can contribute to the risk of fire and the time it takes to spread between different areas in the building. We look for parts of the construction or poorly installed facades that would contribute to the speed of fire spreading.

 

Prevent Spread of Fire

 

By highlighting and reducing the risks within a building, it is possible to significantly reduce the risk of fire and the speed at which it spreads. This reduces the potential of heavy losses, in terms of lives as well as the financial and emotional impact.

Considerations such as the compartmentalization of areas in your building are a fundamental part of our inspection. We look for fire barriers, their placement and quality of installation. We then report back on the compliance and level of safety of your façade.

O&M Manual Checking

 

Understanding and complying to your O & M Manual can be a complex and arduous task. We support building managers and owners to understand their responsibilities. We check your level of compliance and provide clarity on your legal responsibilities.

We provide advice and investigate your building, the paperwork and drawings to provide thorough information on areas of compliance and non-compliance. This is accompanied with advice to support you with the next stages.
