Fire Compartmentation Survey & Fire Stopping Installation

Service Overview

Element was hired by Sykes and Sons Limited to conduct an extensive survey of their student housing structures. The goal was to identify any potential fire safety hazards that could put residents in danger. Our team of experts meticulously examined each building, inspecting walls, floors, ceilings, and service penetrations to carry out a comprehensive fire compartmentation survey. We aimed to detect any areas of concern or breaches that required immediate attention.

After analyzing the survey results, Element promptly took remedial measures to address the identified fire safety risks. We implemented targeted solutions to ensure that all safety measures met the required standards, effectively mitigating any potential hazards and safeguarding both the building and its occupants. Our partnership with Sykes and Sons Limited exemplifies a proactive commitment to fire safety, as our thorough survey and prompt remedial works significantly improved the safety of the student accommodation residents.

With our expertise and attention to detail, Element managed all fire safety risks effectively, ensuring compliance with regulatory standards and maintaining the building’s security. Our dedication to delivering dependable, high-quality fire safety solutions provided peace of mind for both Sykes and Sons Limited and their student accommodation residents. This project serves as a testament to Element’s proficiency in enhancing fire safety and showcases our commitment to providing comprehensive fire safety solutions for various environments, including student accommodation.

Challenges Faced

Throughout our project, we faced a major challenge due to the constant activity of the student accommodation building. As the building was occupied all day, it was vital to maintain clear communication with the university. We made sure that the university was aware of start times, restrictions, and other logistical factors to minimize disruptions to the residents’ daily routines and activities. Through effective communication, we were able to coordinate our work efficiently, ensuring that our fire safety measures were seamlessly integrated with the ongoing operations of the accommodation. By proactively addressing these challenges, we successfully balanced the need for fire safety improvements with the smooth functioning of the student accommodation, providing a secure living environment for the residents while minimizing any inconveniences they may have experienced.
