About this event
The Fire Safety Act is set to shake up the fire industry. In this webinar, we will help you understand those challenges and how they will affect you.
Cardinus and FRC have set up an operational alliance to better serve their respective clients and the wider community. Together they assess, advise and report on fire-related matters on over 3,000 blocks a year.
Your host is Cardinus’ Fire specialist Survey Manager, Samantha Crawley. Sam is engaged with many of you already, providing technical support on issues arising from these changes. She will give insight and advice on the practical change’s you will see day-to-day.
To guide us through the complex issues relating to facades, building structure and compartmentalisation we have FR Consultant’s Managing Director Dorian Lawrence. Dorian has championed the needs of us all in dealing with the Government over the BSF. He is probably the most knowledgeable person across the BSF spectrum.
Following Dorian’s talk, we’ll open the floor to your questions, where you’ll be able to pose your queries and questions to our speakers.
