We are focused on providing fire safety solutions for all types of buildings throughout their lifecycle.

From inception through to demolition, our team of highly skilled Fire Engineers and Fire Safety Consultants has extensive experience supporting our clients in design, construction and in or upon occupation of buildings across all sectors.

Fire safety is paramount in what we say and do, however as design consultants we also understand the impact that fire safety design can have on other disciplines. We pride ourselves on being Considerate Consultants and believe that the best fire safety solutions do not need to have major impacts on architectural, mechanical, electrical or structural design aspirations. We work collaboratively with the entire team to find a safe, workable solution.

The Golden Thread of Information

In her independent review of building regulations, Dame Judith Hackitt recommended that a Golden Thread of information is provided for every building. The golden thread is a ‘paper trail’ of fire safety information starting from initial concept design, through construction, handover, occupation and beyond. It is crucial to ensuring that there is sufficient accurate, up-to-date and detailed fire safety information so all buildings can be adequately managed, maintained and risk assessed.

Historically, Fire Safety Engineers typically provided design fire strategy advice only, and seldom got involved with material selection, construction, on-site inspection works, commissioning or on-going life cycle issues. This meant changes following the completion of design were not picked up or not adequately considered as part of the whole fire safety package, and that information passed on to building managers was often missing, inaccurate or unsafe.

At Ashton Fire, we have always strived to provide the ‘full circle’ of fire safety services as set out below. This means we are taking the necessary steps to ensure that the all-important golden thread of information is being accurately recorded and passed along throughout the lifecycle of the building.
