Network Stadium is a major housing association with over 8,500 properties.
Frankham RMS were commissioned to ensure that all their properties comply with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and produce an accompanying Compliant Fire Risk Strategy. Frankham RMS were awarded the contract for carrying out Fire Risk Assessments (FRAs) at all their sites including tower blocks, high rise blocks, low rise blocks, sheltered schemes, agency managed sites as well as their street-side conversions.
All Fire Risk Assessment reports produced for Network Stadium were quality checked and validated by the Contract Manager prior to submission.
The Contract Manager ensured that there was consistency throughout and also attended the initial site surveys with individual assessors and 5% of the FRAs to ensure the accuracy of the reports and ensure discrepancies were identified and corrected.
More recently, fire risk assessments produced were reviews of those previously carried out. This presented an ideal opportunity to improve on the older report format. (A be-spoke format was identified and agreed on with the client, which largely reflected the requirements of PAS 79).
Specific training was given to nominated Network Stadium staff over the course of the contract to various levels / grades of staff. Changes in law and in particular LACORS guidance was immediately relayed to Network Stadium, fully discussed and where necessary actions implemented.
