FRA in multi storey car park

Hi all,

Quick question for you all. I carried out an FRA in a 1965 multi-storey car park and fire doors were of poor condition and risk rooms i.e. electric cupboards etc had compartmentation breaches. I stated the requirements as per ADB 2019 for compartmentation standards and the client is asking why I am benchmarking a modern document if the buidling was built in 1065. Can anyone tell me the legal requirement, if any, to bring an older building up to a modern fire safety standard?

Thanks in advance

It doesn't even still meet the 1965 standards if the compartmentation has been breached and the original fire doors in poor order - breaching both the legal requirement to maintain in effective working order and to protect means of escape and mitigate the effects of fire.

To determine if it's a legal requirement to modernise go through this tree:
