Whether you need to understand deficiencies in, or plan to upgrade an existing building in relation to fire safety, Credwell Consulting can help by providing a comprehensive audit report that details the pertinent matters for consideration.
As well as assessing the building against the requirements of the NCC and providing a detailed schedule of compliance, the report itself also provides an upgrading strategy prioritised by urgency and importance with the works required to be undertaken within each section. Depending on the scope and scenario, advice and guidance can be provided with regards to the most effective route for obtaining a building permit, which may involve assessment against various legislative acts and regulations at state and federal levels, as well as consideration as to whether the works required can be augmented and rationalised in such a way that a particular and preferable route can be achieved. The approach taken is to understand the scope and requirements of the project and confirm subsequent options given the relevant parts of the NCC, legislation, and regulations. Flexibility is available for reporting in which a customised content can be provided also.
The report can form the basis of a scope of works that can be used to create specifications and documentation for tendering purposes and lists the required fire safety measures for the building, which have the opportunity to be consolidated where available. From experience, many Fire Safety Schedules are only partially complete in the information that should be provided in accordance with industry expectations, so the upgrade report occasions the chance to prepare a fully comprehensive schedule that will ensure the correct and proper maintenance of fire safety measures going forward.
Credwell Consulting have completed many fire upgrade reports for a variety of clients and buildings with a range of needs and requirements and are available to attend site to inspect the resulting upgrades and answer queries that arise during the course of the project. Once the works are satisfactorily complete, written confirmation that the works meet the requirements of the upgrading strategy can be issued.
