The objective of fire compartmentation is to prevent the rapid spread of smoke and fire. By subdividing the building we can protect escape routes, high risk or high-value areas and prevent extensive losses.
A suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment will typically involve a review of existing fire compartment measures. However, the scope of a fire risk assessment will not extensively cover every item of fire compartmentation and a more detailed survey may sometimes be recommended. Sampling can indicate the presence of significant issues, such as locating or confirming the presence of fire dampers or establishing if existing measures meet the requirements of current guidance or to meet other specific objectives.
At Miller Knight, our team of qualified surveyors can assist our clients with carrying out intrusive compartment surveys that include all the necessary opening up and reinstatement works required.
