For a new commercial building to be approved by building control, the design should incorporate a suitable fire safety strategy. The fire safety strategy should be specifically tailored to your building and cover the necessary aspects of fire safety under The Building Regulations. The main guidance document to be followed is Approved Document B Volume 2, however our fire engineers also use the performance-based code of practice BS 9999. Our team of chartered fire safety engineers have a great deal of experience delivering cost effective fire strategies to buildings of all sizes no matter what development stage they’re at. We’re meticulous in our approach; ensuring compliant, cost-effective solutions are achieved and passed by the approving authorities.
A fire safety strategy from Pyro Fire will ensure that your building will comply with the functional requirements on fire safety given in The Building Regulations and incorporate our value-engineering solutions.
We do not just deliver a fire strategy, but continue to work with the client to smooth the path through the approvals process, and to provide continuing support in resolving any fire issues that may arise in implementing the fire safety measures right through the construction process.

A fire strategy acts as the bible for a building’s fire safety measures and consolidates all the building information into one simple report. Any question surrounding fire safety for the building can usually be answered by consulting the strategy. However, fire strategies often go missing or get lost during a building’s sale or changeover of management.
A fire strategy is not strictly a legal requirement for an existing building, but from a safety perspective, it is ideal to have one. We often produce fire strategies retrospectively for our clients or update existing strategies to ensure the building has a suitable document showing the information that need not be included in a typical fire risk assessment.
A fire strategy can be a time-consuming exercise for a fire engineer. A fire strategy may take anything up to 7 working days to produce. Every fire strategy is different and therefore priced on request.
In order to work on a fire strategy, we need as much information as possible. This usually stems from floor plans – we will need to-scale plans showing elevations, cross-sections, and site boundaries.
I used Pyro Fire Services to carry out the annual fire risk assessment at 10 of our schools. The service we received was spot on and the advice we received was great. The reports came through the very next day where as with other companies it’s taken a few weeks to receive them.
We’ll definitely be using Pyro again moving forward.Lee R - Multi-Academy Trust

Pyro Fire were asked to come and review our fire doors after concerns from a previous fire risk assessment. A few days after the inspection we had our insurance company on-site who reviewed the survey and commented on the great quality of the report.
