Recent fire door survey

A recent fire door survey carried out in Royal Berkshire revealed that the premises was a built as a "Speculative" building (Spec Build). This means that it was built with no particular client or purpose in mind. When the building was finally occupied the tenants then introduce new offices doors and areas etc. 

The building manager thought there was a large number of fire doors, but our survey revealed that many of the doors that were built to fire door standard were not required to be fire doors. This also meant that some of the remedial action would not be required.

The survey also revealed that there had been poor fire stopping in all service risers. This had never been identified in any previous fire risk assessment.
