Client Case Studies

Private school in listed building – the brief

The classic boarding school sprawls over a vast acreage of a country estate with a tree-lined entrance road! The original ‘house’ is a listed building, but over the past 50 years, buildings have been added all over the site, and there is a mixture of uses and building styles. The biggest challenge when trying to risk assess such a complex is how to present the findings and recommendations in an easy-to-use manner which the client can work with.

Solution

Collaboration is the key to success in these projects, and from quotation to completion we worked closely with the client to ensure that we were able to access the information we needed, and then present the findings in a series of reports which covered different areas of the estate without undue repetition. We developed simple Action Plans for each area to provide a prioritised task list for the client to use once we had completed the report.

The Client’s Comments

“Thank you very much indeed for the completed Fire Risk Assessment in all its compartments. The assessor was excellent!  I learnt a great deal from him. I would recommend him to any establishment.” Estates Manager
