"This was the first I have used Cardan Fire. I have to say that this is one the best FRA reports that I have had back. EXTREMELY easy to read and understand, very well presented and a friendly and professional service too. I have no hesitation in recommending Cardan Fire." - Daniells Harrison
"Stuart offers a very professional service and is a good communicator. We would recommend his services and use him again for any of the buildings we look after, without hesitation" - Kevin Magee
In doing so you are selecting a competent person to carry out a fire risk assessment.
All of our premises fire risk assessments are produced professionally, in colour, with photographs. The majority of our reports are based on the PAS79 format, which is the Publicly Available Specification format used by the industry and are written in simple non-jargon plain English to assist you to understand its content. You will also receive a summary of the ‘significant findings’ in the form of an action plan for you to progress (with our recommendations) and to ensure compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Events and some very small simple premises will receive reports appropriate for the size of the event/building.
