Type 2 and 4 risk assessments are destructive assessments that can assess and report on the integrity of separating construction, validating appropriate fire separation throughout the building and façade surveys of sub-structure, fire barriers, insulation, membrane construction and waterproofing or ingress.

Type 2 fire risk assessments cover common parts and the inspection includes a degree of destructive exposure.
