An FRAEW will not be required for all blocks of flats, particularly where the risk to life from fire spread is likely to be sufficiently low. For these buildings, Thomasons provide FRAEW screening services using PAS 9980:2022 assessment methodology to determine whether a full FRAEW is required.
Pre-PAS 9980:2022 Appraisal
Where a full FRAEW is required and sufficient information is known about the external wall construction, a Pre-PAS 9980 appraisal can be provided. This approach gives clients an initial indication of the likely full PAS 9980 outcome.
Building Safety Fund (BSF) and Mid-Rise Fund (MRF)
All BSF & MRF funding decisions for new applications now require a FRAEW assessed in accordance with PAS 9980:2022, to be undertaken by competent professionals. Thomasons have extensive experience of the BSF process having worked with many of the largest managing agents and freeholders across the UK.
Where the FRAEW identifies the need for mitigation or remediation, Thomasons have multidisciplinary expertise and experience to support clients with remediation design and delivery.
