Continuing our partnership with Savills to deliver fire risk assessments
15 December 2021
We’ve recently renewed our contract with Savills to carry out the fire risk assessments (FRAs) on all our buildings for the next five years. They will continue to work with us to ensure we have up to date FRAs for all our buildings with shared communal areas in accordance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire) Order 2005.
We first appointed Savills to work with us in 2015 and when their contract came to an end this year, they successfully maintained it following our procurement process. Savills is one of the leading experts in producing fire risk assessments in the industry. They’ll continue to work with us for the next five years with the potential for us to extend the partnership for longer.
We regularly review FRAs for our buildings with an internal shared / communal area which is a requirement of us as your landlord and an essential measure we must take to keep you safe in your home. The purpose of the FRA is to assess the risk of a fire occurring, the likelihood of residents being able to respond to a fire and the consequences of a fire occurring in the building.
When Savills completes a fire risk assessment, they include recommendations for us to improve the safety of the building. We have over 1,800 FRAs and currently publish all FRAs for buildings over six storeys as well as our sheltered and supported housing buildings. If you would like to view the FRA for your building you can do so on our website at www.networkhomes.org.uk/mybuildingdocs. If you’re not able to find the FRA for your building but would like to view it, please contact our Fire Safety Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 373 3000.
