We have over 20 years professional experience of building services consultancy in residential and commercial development. We work alongside Developers and architects at early concept planning stages to ensure compliance with applicable fire and ventilation codes. We can provide ventilation reports in less than two days so we can assure you that your planning authority application can be submitted as soon as possible.
In accordance with the Maltese Development Planning Regulations the Planning Authority may require that a fire safety, ventilation, light and noise report be prepared to support planning applications of new development.
The report must be prepared by a warranted engineer who shall certify that the proposed development meets the relevant statutory codes and technical standards. The report will typically address the following issues:
- Provision of fire detection and fire safety measures including appropriate siting of means of escape to limit travel distances, fire compartmentation and access for the fire service amongst others;
- Provision of appropriate means of ventilation of enclosed car parks to safeguard against harmful exposure to carbon monoxide;
- Provision of appropriate lighting levels of enclosed car parks to enable safe navigation and egress in the event of power failure; and
- Assessment of noise impacts of any proposed commercial development on neighbouring development and appropriate mitigation measures.
