Designing and supplying a compliant solution to nonconformance in a FRA
Following a fire risk assessment a number of non-conformances were raised on site regarding the means of escape. T and D were appointed to supply and install a fully compliant solution to ensure the means of escape on site were suitable and safe.
Having gained permission from the local authority co complete the proposed works the team arrived on site, isolated the working area and set up man safe systems on the flat roof the T and D team began work breaking out and installing foundations for the new staircase.
Once completed the existing ladder was carefully removed and taken off site for disposal, allowing the staircase to be installed.
With the staircase installed full edge protection was erected around the perimeter of the roof and one of our NICEIC approved electricians installed emergency bulk head lighting with sensors from the emergency escape door.
To ensure the risk of third parties gaining unauthorised access was removed the team installed a steel mesh around the staircase with an emergency push bar escape door at the base.
For the finishing touch bollards were installed around the staircase to ensure there was no risk of damage from passing cars.
