Fire safety – making Compliance Simple and Effective. Unparalleled expertise with demonstrable success.
The recommendations in many fire safety reports can be overcomplicated and expensive. We focus on delivering evidenced value for money. Our fire safety solutions are innovative, clearly explained and, most importantly, relevant.
Fire safety can appear to be a bureaucratic headache and therefore needless! We challenge this belief and unpick the real problems, through provision of specialist guidance and solutions in line with how you do business.
During 2018 PrePro combined with Ardenlea Fire Consulting to consolidate their expert fire design and fire strategy services alongside our established H&S, CDM and Fire Risk Assessment services.
We specialise in innovative fire design, particularly for those buildings that others have seen as too difficult.
We offer a Fire Design Review (FDR) and fire strategy service for new developments and refurbishments. These will accompany your Building Regulations application (Regulation 38) to provide:
- A due diligence platform for regulatory fire safety compliance (once building is occupied) with the RRFSO.
- Compliance with Building Regulations.
- Produce a workable and effective fire alarm design that embraces regulatory compliance and out of hours fire resilience.
Our FDR is cost effective. Many fire safety design provision are often over specified by Contractors who lack the detailed knowledge of Building Regulations and Approved Documents/guidance relating to fire safety.
Fire Risk Assessment
We undertake fire risk assessment audits of all types of premises; this includes production of an easy-to-read-and-understand prose report, with a detailed fire action plan. Our advice gives specific control measures for all significant findings identified during the assessment.
We do not “over specify” to reduce our own liabilities. Our solutions are presented and validated robustly (where necessary) free of charge on your behalf to enforcing authorities. We provide ongoing fire safety support free of charge for premises that we fire risk assess.
We also specialise in providing simple and effective compliance solutions for Enforcement and Prohibition Notices served by the Fire Service. We liaise with the Fire Officer on your behalf and are able to project manage any solutions.
Critical Friend Audits / On Site Support
We offer critical friend fire safety management health checks to ensure that your organisation achieves and maintains statutory fire safety compliance. This will identify cost savings based on replacement of valueless provisions with effective systems in line with how you work!
It can be extremely costly to provide your own qualified fire safety expert in house. We offer prompt on and off site fire safety support. Our experience and personable approach means we can become a trusted part of your team today.

- Fire design
