Fire and life safety will remain one of the most critical issues for every part of the property and construction sectors for years to come. The UK has historically had an outstandingly good record on building safety compared to many other countries, but now we must tackle cultural complacency and address the appalling revelations from the Grenfell Inquiry.
There is no part of the construction industry untouched by the need to promote improved safety.
LMC has specialist consultants who are very familiar with the technical, legal and reputational issues around fire and life safety. We understand the implications of the new building safety regime in the UK, and the standards required internationally.
We have also worked with many clients across safety-focused design, installation, building control and product testing.
We have managed crisis PR for organisations affected by fire, advised on reputational strategy and initiatives to improve fire safety in construction and housebuilding, organised high-profile international fire safety events at the Houses of Parliament, and helped clients with public policy input before and after the Hackitt Review.
