Consultancy AESG has released a cloud-based data management platform devised to host and store the information that will be required for the new Fire and Emergency File, part of the Building Safety Bill.
Known as Fire+, the platform acts as a logbook, providing a digital audit trail, to support owners of existing and new buildings in ensuring life safety, compliance, efficiency, reliability, and sustainability performance are mapped from the outset.
To develop the platform, AESG said it drew on its expertise and track record in advising asset managers and developers to ensure buildings are fire compliant, facades and cladding are fire-proof, and that performance of the building is optimised.
James Dickson, director at AESG, said: “Compliance with the UK government’s new regulations will depend on the responsible management of asset lifecycle data and the industry widely adopting smart data solutions to facilitate it.
“With Fire+, we have advanced the digitisation of building fire safety information to create a platform that provides an easily accessible solution to help both existing and new clients adhere to the new fire safety legislation, and it is exactly these sorts of cloud-based solutions that are critical to safeguarding our buildings and the lives within them.”
