Existing conditions analysis

Is your building safe and does it meet the applicable requirements?

At Technorm, we offer an existing conditions analysis service for owners or investors who want to find out what modifications need to be made to ensure that a building complies with the requirements of the applicable regulations.

If you have any doubts about a building’s compliance with occupant safety and fire safety, we can provide clarification.

What is an existing conditions analysis?

When you hire us to assess a building’s safety, our consultants first identify the regulations that apply to existing buildings in the same class and the requirements that apply to them. They then visit the site to identify major deficiencies.

This inspection covers various fire alarm elements:

  • Type of construction, fire separations and fire resistance rating
  • Limiting distances and facade construction
  • Interconnected floor spaces
  • Escape routes
  • Special requirements for high-rise buildings
  • Fire detection and alarm system
  • Fire protection systems
  • Barrier-free access
  • Number of sanitary appliances required
  • Access roads for fire department

Their findings are then presented in a building compliance report.

Why request a building compliance report?

There can be many reasons to request a compliance report.

As a property owner, for example, you may want to know what deficiencies exist and then carry out the necessary work to ensure that your building meets the applicable codes and standards. If you are considering selling a property, a compliance report presented to buyers can be a convincing selling point.

A building compliance report should also be included in a due diligence report, which is essential if you are planning to purchase a residential, commercial or industrial property.

An existing conditions analysis reveals safety problems? We have solutions!

If we discover deficiencies during the inspection of your building, we can review different ways to correct them.

We can even propose these to the relevant authorities to speed up and simplify the process of ensuring your property is in compliance.
