Pre Occupation Report
No doubt as a landlord, you’ll want to establish that the construction stage of the building has been completed, fire strategy implemented, and necessary fire safety design measures incorporated prior to handover and subsequent occupation.
This information is usually communicated in a Pre Occupation Fire Safety Assessment Report.
What will landlord fire risk assessment consider?
- The structure and purpose of the building/premises
- The applicable fire-related legislation and the guidance document(s) used
- Means of Escape
- Internal Fire Spread
- External Fire Spread
- Fire Fighting Provisions
- Fire Protection Measures
- Fire Engineering
- Operation & Maintenance Manuals (O&M)
- Certificates of Conformity/Commissioning Certificates
A Pre Occupation Fire Safety Assessment Report is the process of identifying fire precautions in a newly constructed building, taking into account the approved fire strategy, and deciding whether or not the new or refurbished premises is likely to be fit for occupation. This assessment can help ensure a smooth transition from the design and construction phase to the operational phase of new premises.
