About Richard McCann & Co

Building survey and fire risk assessment. Conducting a fire risk assessment of a building for compliance with minimum standards or fire officers requirements, and prepare a prioritized schedule of remedial works to upgrade the building.

Preparation of application for a fire safety certificates. For projects involving a new build, extension, a material alteration or change the use of a building, other than for a few exceptions, will require a fire safety certificate be granted before works can commence. To prepare this requires detailed knowledge of the various fire safety regulations and guidance documents and building practice.

Certification of compliance. Many types of building uses require certification of compliance, in particular, Nursing homes, child-care premises, licensed premises, etc. During conveyance of a building, many might ask if there is a fire safety cert for the building, but will not ask if the building complies with this certificate. Would you buy a used car like that?

Fire safety management. I can help you develop a fire safety management plan for your premises, including a management structure with various essential roles assigned, develop an evacuation strategy for the building, provide training for personnel and document the plan in a Register.

Disability Access Certificates. Since Jan 2010, any project requiring a fire safety certificate also now needs a Disability Access Certificate. The aim of this is to facilitate access and use of buildings to the wide range of ability levels in the community, with particular emphasis on those with impairment of mobility, vision and/or hearing. From 2012, development to existing buildings, such as an extension or material alteration, will be required to improve the accessibility to the existing building as well as to the new works.
