"I’ve had a really good experience with Fireco, the Inspector turned up on time and was great with the occupants of the different flats that need the doors checking. I’d definitely recommend Fireco. Everything was easy and I got everything I needed. We’re really grateful for the thorough report."

Project Manager at The Guinness Partnership

THE PROBLEM

Non-compliant fire door installation

The Guinness Partnership hired another company to come and fit fire doors in some of their properties. Unfortunately the contractor they hired fitted fire doors with lots of errors and they weren’t fit for purpose, they didn’t have overhead door closers and the surrounds weren’t fitted.

Laurence Hancock, Project Manager at The Guinness Partnership, needed to take action ASAP to find out what work was needed in order to make the fire doors safe and compliant and ensure he had sufficient evidence for a court hearing.

the solution

Easy experience and thorough report provided

Laurence carried out some research to find a company that would complete a door inspection and also provide thorough reports showing the findings.

Laurence explained “Fireco were one of the only companies that did this type of work and they came up high on the search. I called a few companies and they didn’t do the reporting that was needed which is why we went with Fireco’s services.”
