As a member of the Fire Protection Association Australia (FPAA) we offer a comprehensive range of fire protection solutions tailored to your specific requirements.
We operate in primarily in Metropolitan NSW but also Country NSW and ACT.
Our company motto is “Gwaith da”, which in Welsh means, ” Good Work”.
We get the job right first time.
All too often we see contractors who have cut corners to save costs.
This usually means the work does not comply with Australian Standards (AS) and Business Council of Australia Building Code Standards (BCA), leaving assets and lives at risk. Local Councils and/or the NSW Fire Brigade inevitably become involved and order rectification works. This can cost the building owner more in the long-run.
If you want the job done right the first time, engage us to manage your fire safety.
For a great example of what NOT to do and why you should engage us instead check out this case study.
Why We think Peace of Mind is So Important with Fire Safety
Not doing the job right can cost building owners and Building Managers ENORMOUSLY in many ways. If you fail to install or maintain essential fire safety measures, here are some of the potential consequences:
People’s lives could be at risk. If a fire occurs and people die or are injured you may be held liable. There have been instances where owners have faced criminal charges with hefty fines and possible jail terms.
Your insurance may not pay out!
Your building and its internal assets / stock are valuable. You may think they’re insured.
But your insurer may have other ideas and refuse to pay some or all of your claim as in their opinion fire safety systems were not up to the required standard.
Council and/or the NSW Fire Brigade may order the work be done by way of a ‘Fire Order’. If you still don’t comply, council may issue significant fines which ratchet up weekly.
Council and/or the NSW Fire Brigade may order the building be shut-down until they are satisfied the essential fire safety measures have been met.
This is usually done in the form of a “Notice to vacate the building” which means the building cannot be occupied other than to carry out rectification work. And yes we have seen this happen and the associated costs can be enormous and best avoided.
Naturally, you’ll get no rent or income from the building during this period.
All of which is why we strongly recommend you consider a Strategic Fire Safety Report.
