Housing NSW embarked on a 4 year programme to improve the fire safety levels across their asset base. This programme involved the preparation of a Fire Risk Management Plan (FRMP) that provided an economic solution for fire upgrade works to existing buildings. Impact Group was engaged to inspect the existing dwellings (apartments, townhouses and villas) and identify the building components that were deficient in fire safety requirements. We then scoped the upgrade works required and supervised a building contractor to undertake the works.
On completion of the works we provided certification that the works had been completed in accordance with the FRMP. We scoped approximately 10,000 properties during this programme. All premises were occupied during the works and therefore a significant focus was on tenant management and safety. The works were successfully completed within a very tight timeframe.
