Ensuring Compliance with Fire Safety Standards

Chartered building company T. Gunning has completed refurbishment works on six apartment blocks on the Fair Acres estate in Bromley to ensure compliance with fire safety standards.


The project included fitting some 150 new BM TRADA Q-mark certified fire doors, installing fire stopping, and the removal of hazardous Asbestos under controlled conditions.  In other locations the asbestos was encapsulated to ensure that it could not be disturbed and release potentially dangerous fibres.


New fireproof ceilings, wall finishes and fire risers were also installed with communal areas upgraded to comply with current fire safety standards in the United Kingdom.


A spokesperson for Belgarum Property Management, property manager for the development, said:

"We have regular meetings to discuss ongoing works which enables us to resolve any issues from either side. We would not hesitate to invite T Gunning to tender for future work – they are a fair and reputable company and we have been very happy with their work."


Matthew Yussuf, Senior Partner at Copeland and contractor administrator for the project, added:

"Fair Acres is a complex estate and the project involved complex detailing; modernising fire safety standards in the blocks, whilst working within the confines of an existing building, managing and co-ordinating not only the works, but the access necessary to complete them.


"T Gunning finished the project with positive feedback from all parties, which is a testament to the good communication, the right attitude and the manner the works were carried out."
