Service Overview

We were entrusted with a crucial task by The Ascot, a renowned global hotelier: to ensure full compliance with fire safety regulations across their UK hotel portfolio. Our primary objective was to safeguard the well-being of their guests and staff in the event of a fire emergency. To meet this challenge, we developed a comprehensive Fire Strategy and conducted meticulous Fire Risk Assessments for all properties. This enabled us to identify potential fire hazards and devise a robust plan to address them effectively.

We adopted a multi-stage approach, starting with in-depth surveys of fire compartments and doors. By pinpointing areas in each hotel that required upgrades to meet the standards, we were able to identify weaknesses in the fire compartments that were vital in containing fire spread within the buildings.

After the survey phase, we proceeded with the installation of fire-stopping measures and fire doors. Our team ensured strict adherence to fire safety regulations, taking all necessary precautions. Fire stopping entailed sealing gaps and penetrations to prevent fire from breaching designated areas, while fire-resistant doors were strategically installed to provide secure fire exits and effectively contain potential outbreaks.

By conducting thorough Fire Strategy, Risk Assessment, Fire Compartmentation, and Fire Door Surveys for The Ascot’s UK hotel portfolio, we equipped their properties to meet and surpass fire safety regulations. Our diligent efforts in implementing Fire Stopping and Fire Doors have fortified the hotels’ ability to protect their occupants in case of a fire. The Ascot can now confidently assert that their properties exceed the required fire safety standards, reflecting their unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of their valued guests and staff.

Challenges Faced

During the project, we faced significant challenges in our efforts to seamlessly coordinate fire safety services in live operational hotels while prioritizing guest comfort and safety. Our main obstacle was implementing vital fire safety initiatives without disrupting the hotel’s daily operations. Our team conducted fire risk assessments, surveys, and installations with great care during off-peak hours while maintaining clear and effective communication with hotel staff. We adjusted schedules and procedures to minimize any interference with guests’ experiences while ensuring that critical compliance measures were efficiently implemented. Despite the challenges, our unwavering commitment to delivering top-notch fire safety solutions allowed us to overcome obstacles and ultimately earned The Ascot’s satisfaction and trust in our capabilities.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to extend my gratitude to you, Craig, and the entire Element PFP team for the exceptional execution of this project.”
