Fire inspection services

Fire protection systems such as sprinklers and fire doors have a well established track record of saving lives and minimising property damage. However, they will not perform properly unless correctly designed, installed and maintained.

Our expert and impartial inspection services ensure that fire protection systems operate effectively, and will continue to play their part in detecting, controlling and extinguishing fires. These services cover the full range of:

  • Fire detection and suppression systems (listed here)
  • Passive fire protection systems (here)
  • Fire safety engineering (here)

As one of the most globally trusted names in fire protection, we can verify that these systems have been designed, installed, tested and commissioned to national, European, international or LPS standards.

BRE offers inspection services for both existing premises and live construction sites. These include a review of the installer's design and validation records and a detailed examination of the installed system. A confidential inspection report is then issued, identifying any defects and departures from the installation standard.

These services are tailored to the needs of our clients. They include installers, main contractors, building owners and occupiers, and members of the legal sector requiring expert witness services.
