PAS9980 – Fire Risk Appraisal of External Wall Construction
Introduction to PAS9980 – Fire Risk Appraisal of External Wall Construction
PAS9980 is the pre-cursor to your Cladding Remediation project, or it should be!
The fire risk from external wall construction and cladding in particular, is predominantly affected by Fire performance, Facade configuration and Fire strategy and Fire hazards.
The purpose of a fire risk appraisal of external walls (FRAEW) is to assess the risk to occupants from a fire spreading over or within the external walls of the building, and to make a decision as to whether, in the specific circumstances of the building, remediation or other mitigation measures to address the risk are considered necessary.
However, undertaking the complex journey of engaging the various parties to not only conduct your FRAEW, but also complete remedial works if required, is significant; particularly when the regulations governing these works are still being fully implemented.
What it covers
We will provide a site inspection and scope of works in line with PAS9980, delivering a fire risk appraisal of external walls (FRAEW). This will require an invasive survey to be undertaken which has been detailed further here.
In the event that the FRAEW identifies issues with fire safety, Intelligent FS offers a range of additional services which follow on from the initial FRAEW undertaken.
