Fire safety consultancy will use PlanRadar to support survey team in data collection
Fire safety and passive fire protection measures consultancy, Global HSE Solutions, has adopted PlanRadar’s digital construction and facilities management platform to help assist in the delivery of more efficient, detailed and accessible fire safety information.
The service will support the company’s Global Technical Services (GTS) division, which provides fire engineering advice and expertise to both Tier 1 contractors and Global HSE’s own contracting arm as well as hosting fire door inspection courses through its in-house Global Academy.
It will also help its clients navigate an ever-changing legislative landscape – including new fire door assessments regulations that came into effect on 23 January 2023.
Planradar describes it as a complete approach for delivering surveys and inspection results. It will be rolled out across GTS’s entire inspection and surveying team, with a view to providing them with an easy way to record and report.
According to Planradar, the team at GTS was particularly impressed by its platform’s ability to record video and integrate BIM, which could support the division’s compliance requirements around the Building Safety Act and increased expectations for data collection in line with the Golden Thread of Information.
“Global HSE and GTS has a well-established reputation for delivering exceptional results in a highly niche, specialised and increasingly important field. Given the stringent requirements around fire safety, there is no margin for error, and a missed record or lack of clarity in inspection reports could have huge ramifications,” said PlanRadar Co-CEO, Ibrahim Imam.
“That’s why we’ve invested in making our tools fit-for-purpose for accurate, compliant and easy to understand data collation fire reporting, specifically for fire professionals. It also ensures that ‘Golden Thread’ principles are being followed throughout, for greater fire safety compliance.
