North Kesteven District Council


Following a review of fire risk assessments in place for 19 blocks of flats, NKDC identified a risk that party walls dividing flats on the top floor were not sufficiently compartmentalised. The risk identified that in the event of a fire, smoke and flames may spread throughout the entire roof void spanning each block with potential to compromise the current stay put policy.

Key Outputs

Throughout the construction phase representatives from the councils building control attended the site on a regular basis where through strict compliance with design proposals, a defect-free installation of passive fire protection to FIRAS certification standards was achieved.
