What is Compartmentation?

Compartmentation is the split of spaces in buildings to resist the spread of fire and smoke from one part of a building to another. This uses construction elements like fire-resistant walls, floors, and doors to create barriers, to effectively contain or slow the spread of fire.

What is a fire compartmentation survey?

As part of the Developer Pledge, an intrusive compartmentation survey needs to be undertaken. This survey is funded by the Developer.

Remediation of Compartmentation

Depending on the results of the survey, the Developer is liable for the remediation of the defects in compartmentation which go back to the original construction.

No Cost - No Obligation Consultation

Understanding Cladding Systems

Frequently Asked Questions

There are Leaseholder protections in place in law. Subject to a successful application, Leaseholders are not liable for costs associated with the remediation.

The Building Safety Fund was set up to cover the cost of cladding remediating for buildings over 18 metres in height which have been clad in combustible material.

The Cladding Safety Scheme was set up to cover the cost of cladding remediating for buildings 11 to 18m in height, which have been clad in combustible material.

The Developer Pledge is a promise made by some of the UK’s biggest house builders, to cover the costs of remediation of buildings over 11m that they built or refurbished in the last 30 years.

Where cladding needs to be removed and the developer is not part of the pledge, you can apply to the Building Safety Fund or the Cladding Safety Scheme.

The Developer will reimburse the Government for any costs that have been incurred and will enter into a grant funding agreement with you directly.

If you building is 11m and over, you need a FRAEW to progress an application for remediation.
