Quotes to Ponder..


"We know that concerns with inadequate fire safety provisions, construction quality, a lack of proper commissioning of fire safety, poor record keeping, and lack of documentation of completed buildings as well as issues of combustible facades are widespread across a broad range of buildings in NSW and in others states and territories." - Ashley Brinson, Executive Director: The Warren Centre

 

"Engage a Proactive Fire Safety Engineer: A fire safety engineer who is engaged to develop a performance solution for proposed development is advised to engage FRNSW as a key stakeholder in the fire engineering brief (FEB) process. FRNSW will provide advice during the FEB process. If FRNSW advice is incorporated into the final detailed design and fire engineering report (i.e. performance solution report), it may result in FRNSW not providing an initial fire safety report, thus saving the development proponent time and money." - Fire & Rescue NSW
