What is the Scrutineer Role?
As the Fire Industry changes and develops, with new and thorough fire safety legislation coming out frequently, it is important that the services we provide as a business keep up with the evolving sector. The Independent Fire Scrutineer service follows Global’s Complete Approach scheme, encompassing each stage and aspect of a project, from conception to completion.
In line with the proposed Independent Construction Assessor (ICA) framework, Global’s Fire Scrutineer role has developed off the back of the Hackitt Working Group Review and subsequently the implementation of the new Building Safety Bill. This highlighted the need for specialists, such as fire engineers, fire scrutineers and auditors to complete inspections and provide support throughout the Golden Thread.
Global are able to provide specialist knowledge and information on all areas of fire safety with client’s properties. This role is necessary to provide reassurance and prevent loss of life in the event of a fire once the building is occupied.
The Independent Fire Scrutineer role addresses contemporary issues head on, taking into consideration legislation and best practice, to create a 360 role that encompasses all elements of Passive Fire Protection and performs at a higher level to increase safety. It’s development off the back of evolving regulations shows its versatility to continue to advance and grow alongside the industry.
