Fire Risk Assessments Cost

Under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, all non-domestic premises need to have an adequate, up-to-date fire risk assessment. Without one, you don’t only endanger people’s lives, you face possible prosecution, and the kinds of fines and reputational damage that could prove fatal to your business, too.

Different types of premises have different guidelines for fire safety standards. Our specialist consultants can carry out fire risk assessments and compile cost-effective, legally-compliant risk reduction strategies for all commercial and public premises, including offices, workshops, schools, pubs and hotels. We can assess buildings that are occupied, under construction or being refurbished; we have particular expertise in timber-framed buildings.

What is the Cost of Fire Risk Assessment?

If you are looking for a fire risk assessment to be carried out on your business, there are a number of factors that will affect the cost of this kind of assessment. These costs are usually related to the type of building and business you have and also the size of the business. We have put together a guide on average costs below;
