Flats - Four Floors - External Wall Survey


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon.  Can anyone please assist. In a block of flats when is an External Wall Survey needed for fire spread??. 

The premises are 4 storey, no commercial premises, external walls are brick, UPVC windows, no infill panels in the wall, good compartmentation - visual survey completed. Good maintained fire doors and fire alarm systems.  Single stairs with 2 flats per floor.  Using a stay put evacuation for over 55's (specialized housing - no wardens on site).

Used the The Government Fire Risk Assessment Prioritisation Tool  and it came out as low risk.  PAS 79-2 has some good info on the topic but to my knowledge it is still suspended.  Can anyone please point to current good guidance.  Don't want to go down the route of unnecessary  survey and expense.
