Compliance inspections with fire engineering recommendations
Warringtonfire's Australian team undertake non-destructive visual inspections of buildings to confirm, where practicable, that the fire safety measures outlined in our fire engineering reports have been provided. As part of these inspections for compliance, we witness testing to confirm that the active fire safety systems are interfaced and operate as intended by the proposed performance solution.
What will I receive during my inspection?
For medium to complex projects, we provide an inspection checklist which clearly outlines the testing, inspection and certification requirements for the final inspection process. We can also provide template certificates to streamline the inspection process.
Above and beyond the physical assets provided to meet regulatory requirements, a final inspection provides you with assurance - giving building owners and users confidence that a building meets the minimum fire safety requirements for occupation.
Why Warringtonfire for my compliance inspection?
At Warringtonfire, we understand the various inspection requirements in Australian states and territories. This includes nonstandard procedures like staged handovers, partial occupation of the buildings, and inspections within densely occupied areas such as shopping centres.
Regulatory and Compliance Services
Fire safety issues on projects can lead to significant claims against contractors, engineers and architects. The most severe fire safety issues can also lead to prosecutions, injury or loss of life. It is during these situations that an expert in fire safety engineering and regulatory fire safety compliance can be called as an expert witness to assist with identifying the root cause of an issue.
NCC Reviews and Code Consultancy
We encourage early engagement with all key stakeholders, as getting the fire strategy right at the beginning of a project will save time and money throughout the project lifecycle. An early assessment of departures from to the deemed-to-satisfy (DTS) provisions of the NCC can result in simple design changes instead of having to develop performance solutions later in the process.

Peer reviews (also called third party fire systems reviews) are often required in construction projects. This is because they can support submission paperwork under the building regulations, or help you understand and evaluate a submission that a third party has presented to you.
