ClearView have now completed the Remedial Fire Stopping works within ten tower block risers for Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, appointed by South Essex Homes. Awarded by tender, the works have been completed to high standards and ahead of schedule. The South Essex Homes was formed in 2005 and is the Management Organisation for Southend-on-Sea Borough Council.
The project required passive fire protection applied within all the electrical and mechanical risers, throughout all floors within the tower blocks. Our Passive Fire Protection engineers were required to remove the old, existing non-compliant Fire Stopping and supply and install compliant Fire Stopping within the risers to cable and pipe penetrations. The risers restricted access due to size and lighting therefore additional light was used where required.
Polyseam (Protecta) products were used throughout the project due to being the preferred product by the client. Including Acrylic Intumescent Mastic and HP Mastic to seal cables and pipes.
All installations are required to meet manufacturers test details requirements.
As part of our quality process, we log each fire stopping requirement on our state-of-the-art Boris software and photograph the area before work commences, this is to ensure the client understands the current state of the non-conformity of the fire safety barrier. All Passive Fire Protection installation works are carried out by our fully trained, NVQ Level 2 engineers. Supervision is provided by a minimum of an SSSTS (qualified supervisor) or on larger sites SMSTS (site manager).
