Number of floors


Recommended Posts

Hello All

My first post, so go easy on me and be nice!

For the purpose of FRA on flats build above shops, do we include the shop level as part of the building, even if not owned by the landlord? ie, 2 levels above the shop will indeed be classed as a 3 story building or not?

Thank you in advance for advice offered.

Yes, whilst the shop should carry out it's own FRA, which should include the risk to relevant persons in the vicinity of the shop (i.e. flats above), that doesn't mean you shouldn't include the existence of the shop in the flat FRA. It's clearly a 3 storey building of ground and two upper floors, for which you are assessing the upper flat floors common areas.
