Block Plans

Undertake amendments to existing block plans. The drafting of new block plans, the upgrade and creation of emergency evacuation plans and procedures.

Special hazards cover a broad spectrum of risks. Special hazards can be areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere but also includes any area containing equipment or processes of exceptionally high value, areas with irreplaceable assets or with revenue greater than the value of the equipment.

Special hazards are very wide ranging. A special hazard can be a building, an area, a room or a piece of equipment. Some examples of special hazards include power generation, manufacturing, telecommunications, machinery spaces, computer rooms, healthcare facilities, museums, archives, farming (silos) and many more. These areas are exceptionally challenging from a fire protection standpoint. The fire alarm and sprinkler systems we see every day may not be appropriate as the only line of defence and may require unique solutions.
