Improving the Management of Building Fire Comparmentation
There are many areas of statutory compliance within any built environment that are sometimes forgotten, not adequately reviewed or maintained as a live reporting basis. Fire compartmentation maintainability and the ability to identify significant risk associated with fire are often overlooked. With the recent events of the Grenfell Tower fire still raw within our nation, highlighting the vulnerability of human life within any built environment is of paramount priority importance. These tragic events have led to a number of reviews articulating the lack of current control and management processes. These in turn have led further to recent regulatory reviews of the current building regulations, British Standards BS9999 2017 Fire safety in the design, management and use of buildings - Code of practice. Protection to life and property is of paramount priority in any built environment.
