Cardinus and FR Consultants Join Forces in New Alliance to Make Britainís Buildings Safer

30th August 2020

Leading risk management specialists Cardinus Risk Management have formed an alliance with UK’s top façade risk advisors FR Consultants to offer a complete solution to the UK’s crisis with façade combustibility, which has gained significant attention since the Grenfell Tower tragedy in June 2017.

As regulatory reform (through The Building Safety Bill and The Fire Safety Bill) strives to address issues that are present, those responsible for the management of buildings are having to undertake a process of checking the fire safety compliance of their properties and potentially commissioning remediation work.

As part of this process, Cardinus is identifying potential “at-risk” buildings and will now offer a wider EWS1 reporting service through FR Consultants who can also offer a full suite of services to achieve compliance.

Between the two technical partners, the entire process of ensuring Fire Safety can be covered:

Non-Destructive Fire Risk Assessments, Fire training, Fire Safety e-learning, Reinstatement Cost Assessments, Fire related Insurer surveys and consultancy and Building Health and safety Audits (undertaken by Cardinus Risk Management)

Destructive Fire Risk Assessments, Exterior Wall Systems survey (EWS1), Fire Engineering reports and assistance, Façade Surveys, Remedial Specification, Clerk of Works, Principle Designer, Budgeting Assistance and Lead Consultant services (offered by FR Consulting).

The combination will allow a complete service Freeholders, Landlords and Agents to get assistance to meet any fire safety compliance they may need.

“With legislation surrounding building safety evolving rapidly, Cardinus, as a BAFE GOLD assessor, and RICS accredited surveyor is delighted with this alliance with FR Consultants, who are one of only a few companies with the expertise in building façade fire safety. FR Consultants is respected and trusted in our industry, as safety is at the heart of everything we do. Rather than just seeing the process as a ‘tick-box’ exercise, between us we can offer consultancy and services tailored to each specific building, working closely with clients to help them with every step of their journey to compliance."

– Jamie Truscott AAIRSM, MD Property and Insurance, Cardinus Risk Management.

“We are pleased that, through our technical partnership with Cardinus, we can assist their large client base with our technical knowledge and at the same time widen our range of services to include Cardinus BAFE accredited Fire Risk Assessments.”

– Dorian Lawrence M.C.I.O.B C.Build E MCABE , MD, FR Consultants.
