Building Compliance Inspections


PCD Fire Designs assists both building owners and potential building owners in identifying compliance issues with existing buildings, in relation to fire safety.

These inspections can form part of a potential owner/ owners due diligence, allowing for detection of any fire safety design issues prior to committing to a purchase or design project.

PCD Fire Designs also provides this service to assist in identifying issues with current building stock. Issues that are identified can be worked into future building works planning.


Accessibility, or the provision of Access for people with Disabilities is an important design consideration. In certain commercial settings (e.g. offices) the building must be designed to allow for entry and access through a building for someone who has a disability.

A few of the accessible features that can be required in a commercial building are; accessible toilet, shower, stair, ramp, door widths, reception desks and corridors.

PCD Fire Designs includes an Accessibility Design in all our Fire Design Reports where required. We are also able to offer this service as a stand alone report if required.
