It was obvious to me fire safety was changing forever when I was appointed shadow expert witness to one of the parties involved in Grenfell.
The focus has shifted and the spotlight is now very much upon external wall construction compliance. I’ve acted as expert for a number of external wall litigation cases now and it still amazes me how many enquiries continue to come through. It just shows you the amount of defects that may exist.
Fortunately, we have an amazing team at PartB who can advise on all things fire and external wall. Our team is made up of seasoned Chartered Fire Engineers, Chartered Building Engineers and Chartered Surveyors. We also work very closely with a well-respected cladding surveying company.
We can help in a number of ways. Whether it’s to perform holistic assessments on existing external walls, advise on the design of new walls or even specify remedial works where things are not quite right. We can also supply EWS1 forms, as our team holds the suitable qualifications and experience required by the RICS.
We believe successful outcomes are delivered by effective people. Therefore, all our wall assessments are completed by a team well versed in such surveys and assessments.
If you have any queries and would like to speak to our specialists, we’re happy to chat. We really do appreciate how confusing it can be and are always here to cut through the jargon and explain the process simply and clearly.
