New fire regulations continue to roll out across NSW.
We are now required to engage a certified fire engineer to map out the fire provisions for new fitouts, even those fitouts that are completed as Complying Developments. We have found a couple of good engineers and have negotiated a volume discount.
If you are looking at a new dental or medical fitout project, be very careful about fire provisions. If you are leasing a premises make sure you know what is included, and not included in your lease. And if you are comparing quotes from fitout companies, make sure you check what fire provisions are included. A fire extinguisher here and there is no big deal, but those sprinkler systems are expensive!
