A Fire Safety Certificate is a certificate granted after the plans and specifications for a new building are assessed by a fire officer for compliance with Part B (Fire Safety) of the Building Regulations.
It is a certification of your proposed fire safety design, not the fire safety design of your finished building. When you receive a Fire Safety Certificate in relation to a proposed design it means that your building, if built in accordance with the design as proposed, complies with the fire requirements of the building regulations.
A Disability Access Certificate is a certificate granted by a Building Control Authority that certifies compliance of the design of new works ( not including dwelling houses), extensions and some material alterations to buildings with the requirements of Part M of the Building Regulations.
We have experience in the preparation of Fire and Disability Access Certificates and can assist with both types of applications.
We can also assist with fire safety audits and applications for Regularisation Certificates. These are certificates granted by a building control authority in respect of works on non-domestic buildings and apartments blocks which were commenced or completed without the necessary Fire Safety Certificate (FSC).
