Fire Safety Certification Newcastle

Your Trusted Fire Safety Consultants in Newcastle

Looking for expert guidance on legislative and regulatory compliance for your building project? Our team of seasoned fire safety consultants in Newcastle can assist you with in-depth knowledge and experience.

As a building owner, the public’s safety inside your premises is your paramount responsibility. This includes the certification and upkeep of fire safety equipment. Building regulations, crucial for public and property safety, mandate these measures.

Obtaining a fire safety certificate for your building involves submitting an annual fire safety statement to the local council and implementing regular fire safety upgrades. For a new project, a development application must be submitted to the council, and fire safety recommendations from the council are required before development consent.

Whether you need fire safety certification for an existing building or a planned development project, our team of fire certifiers in Newcastle can assist. SureScope provides building assessments, professional advice, and safety statements in accordance with the required high standards of fire safety certification in Newcastle.

Annual Fire Safety Statements

An annual fire safety statement is required for all existing industrial, commercial, multi-unit residential developments and public premises, certifying that the premises or building meets the following standards for fire safety:

  • Smoke detection and alarms
  • Sprinkler systems
  • Fire doors
  • Fire hose reels, hydrants, or portable fire extinguishers
  • Emergency lighting
  • Exit signs
  • Evacuation plans.

You must apply for an annual fire safety statement if you own any of the abovementioned properties. As the regulatory authority on fire safety statements, the local council can issue penalties if fire safety statements are not correct. Having your building assessed and a statement written by a professional private certifier is vital.

Our fire safety consultants in Newcastle can conduct building assessments and provide recommendations on improving or upgrading the building’s essential fire safety measures to meet the Building Code of Australia’s standards. Once we’ve established the building is up to standard, we can provide a statement for submission to the council.

Fire Safety Upgrades

When the local council receives a development application, they can order the owner to improve the building plans to meet fire safety standards. The council does this to:

  • Increase the safety of building occupants in the event of a fire
  • Ensure statutory requirement compliance
  • Ensure maintenance and use of the building doesn’t create a fire hazard
  • Ensure emergency service can access the building
  • Ensure tenants can exit the building easily.

SureScope can provide recommendations to ensure your building complies with all council requirements and obtain acceptable fire protection levels, from smoke alarms to complete survival solutions.

Avoid lengthy delays and ensure the safety and accessibility of your building with the assistance, advice and services of our experienced fire safety certification consultants.
