Fire safety contractors
We are specialist fire safety contractors working across London and the home counties. We work with our clients to ensure their buildings meet the latest fire safety standards. We advise on fire protection and deliver a wide range of fire safety services.
As principal fire safety contractors, we have the expertise to deliver both active and passive installations as well as associated maintenance within all types of building, including social housing, schools, hospitals, commercial premises and listed buildings.
We make sure our clients clearly understand fire safety legislation and the requirements needed to meet legal requirements.
We have built long-standing working relationships with many of our clients thanks to our specialist skills, collaborative approach and strong reputation as a leading fire safety contractor in London.
As a specialist fire safety contractor, we have the skills and experience to work across several sectors, helping to meet a range of fire safety requirements for our clients.
For social housing providers, we deliver fire protection upgrades, including installing fire doors and fire detection, alarm and suppression systems. Our experience means we are also active across several major frameworks providing fire safety services for social housing across London.
In the healthcare sector, our team has an in-depth knowledge of different building’s needs and associated evacuation types. We can offer specialist installations for the healthcare industry, including anti-bacterial coated fire doors, x-ray room fire doors and anti-ligature installations.
We are highly experienced in bringing educational establishments up to full fire safety compliance. We take a practical and proactive approach, providing full certification for our clients’ records. When working in student accommodation, we can certify our installation and arrange for routine inspections, so that the responsible person can prove ongoing commitment and compliance.
Fire safety contractors must be skilled at working in live sites. Our experienced team, including resident liaison officers, ensure that all work is delivered while minimising disruption and ensuring the highest levels of safety.
We have delivered fire safety and protection projects for local authorities, healthcare providers, and housing associations.
One example includes a project for Ealing Council which saw us deliver fire safety services for a retirement complex. Our team replaced certified fire doorsets for front entrance doors, communal compartmentation doors, and riser cupboard and electrical intake cupboard doors. We also installed large fire-rated glazed screens, compliant fire safety signage, and passive fire protection for service penetrations within risers, ceiling voids and the boiler room.
As a specialist fire safety contractor, we are a team of highly experienced construction professionals. Our directors have specialist knowledge, experience and expertise, and lead committed and talented teams.
We pride ourselves on our training and apprenticeship scheme, which has seen us offer opportunities to people of all ages and levels. Our commitment to training is one of the reasons behind us achieving an Investors in People Gold Award.
