Professional FRAEW Survey Services In London
We’re a reliable firm that performs FRAEW surveys in London and nearby areas to assess the fire risk of the building’s external walls. Our team of experts performs each FRAEW survey as per the PAS 9980:2022 code of practice. Therefore, our inspection and assessment protocols align with the guidelines proposed by the British Standards Institution.
Considering the growing expenses for remediation, there’s a need to understand how external walls pose a fire risk. The FRAEW survey is developed to evaluate the risk of fire spreading over or through the external walls of multi-storey buildings, sheltered homes, specialised housing, and student accommodation. It also helps assessors determine whether corrective measures are needed to address risk factors.
Performing a FRAEW survey as per PAS 9980 guidelines requires appropriate expertise, knowledge, and experience regarding technical assessments. That’s why we have a team of dedicated fire engineers, façade inspectors, and safety officers.
We Conduct Comprehensive FRAEW Surveys As Per PAS 9980
Our company conducts the FRAEW survey according to a five-step process as laid out in the code of practice.
- We first confirm whether a complete risk assessment is required
- We look at current documents and evidence to compile information
- We group risk factors that are essential for determining overall risk rating
- We look at each category of factors to evaluate their influence on the overall risk
- We compare the analysis with the criteria to provide a suitable rating
We can carefully look at fire strategy considerations of different buildings based on current risk factors. Expert fire engineers on our team can conduct a detailed technical appraisal to understand the fire risk of external wall cladding on existing multi-storey buildings.
This allows us to make suitable judgments regarding fire safety features that impact the risk rating. Based on the rating, our team provides clients with suggestions on changes that they can make to improve the rating. Our recommendations are backed by professional indemnity insurance so that clients feel confident about the changes they make.
