Project Specification Group, a unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, is reiterating the importance of construction compliance to protect the safety of a building’s residents.
Paul Thompson, BIM Manager at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions (pictured, above), comments: “We recently saw the launch of The Building Safety Bill, which set out a clear pathway for the future on how residential buildings should be constructed and maintained, and we wholeheartedly support this.
“We believe that the drive to reduce cost must not compromise the safety performance of a building, especially when people’s lives could be put at risk from substandard building design and construction.
“We trust the new Building Safety Regulator will raise standards across the industry, ensuring that any building safety risks are managed and resolved more effectively.
“Gateway points at design, construction and completion phases will help to put safety at the heart of every stage of building planning, specification, construction, and management.
“Of course, cost must be considered, but compromising on or deviating from the recommended specification can significantly impact the operational safety of a building. Ultimately, substitution of products and weighing up cost savings versus safety impact could cost lives.”
With this in mind, ASSA ABLOY Project Specification Group supports architects, developers and contractors at every stage of a project, from design, sustainability and legislation advice to installation and ongoing maintenance.
The company recommends regular inspection, maintenance, and the replacement of products throughout the lifecycle of the product and building to help ensure fire safety.
To help specifiers further, Project Specification Group’s BIM offering – Openings Studio™ – streamlines the specification process for doors and ironmongery and helps reduce costs, increase efficiency and collaboration throughout the project lifecycle.
