It is your responsibility to protect your property and people from the possibility of a fire, in case it breaks out.

At ASCO Fire, we provide a range of compliance surveys tailored according to client’s priorities and circumstances. Just give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll be there to assist you.
What are Code Compliance Surveys?
In order to meet legal requirements, building and facility owners must make sure that fire prevention systems in their buildings are robust and are being maintained and managed properly. This is the reason why we have code compliance surveys in place to ensure that your facility does not fall under a defaulter list. Internal audits are carried out to achieve the highest possible safety standards. The surveys may include a few things like:
- Visual inspection of the floors and walls including both beneath raised floors and above ceilings.
- Assessing the integrity of fire-resistant elements in accordance to pass/fail criteria as per local codes and conduct.
- Preparation of a written report including photographs and advice on areas of non-compliance.
Surveyors typically spend one full day for site inspections. They may look into some strategic areas in the building, such as escape corridors, plantrooms, lobbies and risers. Indicative photographs are taken to show the problem areas, and an evaluation is done to estimate a budget for remediation.
Any fire compartment issue is inspected and recorded where a cost is estimated, while other issues are identified, but not quantified at the time. It takes a maximum of one day to conduct the entire code compliance survey, followed by report preparation.
Benefits of Code Compliance Surveys
The code compliance survey provides you with indications of where you are not meeting legal requirements according to local fire department. You get an easy-to-understand report that is broken down into topic or department areas. You get the starting point as to where you need to build the action plan.
