Help with making your Building Regs Submissions

Where the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO) applies to the premises or will apply following the building work, it is a legal requirement that the building control body (BCB) must consult with the relevant Fire and Rescue Authority; (the RRFSO applies to most premises, however, domestic premises occupied as single private dwellings are not included).

Our aim at Fire Risk Consultancy Services is to provide fire safety expertise, advice and deliver a friendly, reliable and competent service to all our clients that will make the legal compliance process as smooth and hassle-free as possible and gives you peace of mind in ensuring that your workplace or business is a safer environment.

If you wish to have your plans checked before the work starts, to avoid any costly errors and corrective work on site by not being fully up to speed with the ever-changing regulations, we recommend you contact us for advice on how the completed building work can comply with the RRFSO so that satisfactory levels of fire precautions are in place once the building becomes occupied.
