Fire Safety in Heritage Buildings

Appendix C of HM Government Fire Risk Assessment guides identify that should your premises be housed within a listed or heritage building “that a balance is struck between ensuring sufficient fire safety measures are in place for the safety of people, yet avoid extensive alterations and helping to maintain the character of the building”.

Ken Golding wrote his MSc dissertation on The Art of Managing Fire Safety in Heritage Buildings and Peter Robinson specialised in operational fire safety of heritage buildings as part of his qualifications. Both have been involved in the risk management in heritage buildings and grounds.

Flood Risk

The earliest and possibly the best example of emergency planning was Noah and the Ark.” Don’t build it, it’s never going to happen.” They said. He built it. It worked. Then they said “It’s never going to happen again.” Sound familiar?
