Fire Equipment Maintenance
From time to time office tenancies in any CBD building will undergo change. Sometimes the property manager advises us in advance of the change being implemented, though often we find out about these changes when we are conducting our routine service visits. Below is good example of fire equipment maintenance in Melbourne and an example where a significant change has been proceeding over several weeks, and the manager has worked with us to keep the fire protection equipment as current a practical, all along the way.
Create a “new” level by exploiting an underused space.
For one of our city based clients – expansion is afoot. Demand for quality office and retail space is at least keeping pace with the growing Melbourne population, and property managers are getting creative. The old basement, previously an underdeveloped storage space, is ripe for conversion to a cool basement cafe. Consequently our Fire Equipment maintenance schedule needs to be updated.
Sprinklers have been added and now all the other services are crowding in too.
Interesting to see that the carpenters carry their own fire extinguisher, but we leave theirs alone when we inspect and update the fixed equipment in the building.
Upstairs our routine service visits discover a cabinet has been placed near an extinguisher making it inaccessible. Or a tenant has brought some of their own fire extinguishers – which haven’t been serviced for a few years ! A friendly chat and we agree to get the unit replaced, or advise them that there is already one quite handy to their location.
We’re also making sure the path to the fire escape is clear (having removed a large pedestal ashtray this morning, Image 3)
On our fire door theme? This building, occupied over 4 (soon to be 5) levels has no fire rated internal walls and thus, no fire doors.
Are your tenant’s needs changing?
