Information sharing with local fire and rescue services

Information sharing with local fire and rescue services

Latest guidance for landlords ahead on 23rd January about what information they need to share with local fire and rescue service – and how.

The National Fire Chief’s Council (NFCC) has been supporting the BIM4Housing Fire Safety Workstream to understand the duties under the new legislation so that it can be managed alongside the other duties they are already wrestling with to satisfy the building safety regulator.

We’ve run several workshops which you can see here https://bim4housing.com/fire-safety/ where responsible and accountable persons of high-rise residential buildings can learn and share knowledge about what information they need to provide information on their buildings to the local fire and rescue service by 23 January 2023 and for the building safety regulator from April.

Inspection of fire doors will be a key activity in the New Year, so we’ve established a new Workstream or experts in fire doors to create pragmatic but effective and auditable inspection procedures. Anyone interested in participating in that, email george.stevenson@bim4housing.com

The fire and rescue services are currently finalising their information sharing arrangements and the NFCC will be providing direct links to the dedicated sections of their websites, which the BIM4Housing Fire Safety Workstream will share – allowing our Community to collaborate in finding the best ways to deliver.
The information to be shared includes details of the construction of the external walls, floor and buildings plans, and information on known faults with key firefighting equipment.
This information must be shared via electronic means, so you are welcome to join the BIM4Housing community to explore the various ways of achieving that.

GOVERNMENT ADVISOR AT BIM4HOUSING MEETING

GOVERNMENT ADVISOR AT BIM4HOUSING MEETING

Special Guest at our meeting last week was @Chris Waterman. Advisor- and sometimes thorn in the side- to Government Ministers and MPs, Chris distilled and explained the Fire Safety Act and the Building Safety Act to MPs and even the Levelling Up Department’s Ministers and luminaries. With decades of experience inside the corridors of power, Chris had many helpful insights from the other side of the fence- along with a rapier wit, which livened-up matters considerably!

Ably assisted by @Matt Hodges-Long and @George Stevenson, and chaired by @Richard Freer

We’ll be looking to hold regular meetings with Special Guest spots in the New Year.

BIM 4 Housing All Set to Disrupt the Housing Sector by Its Innovative Methods

BIM 4 Housing All Set to Disrupt the Housing Sector by Its Innovative Methods

BIM 4 Housing, the non-profit organisation, is brimming with innovation to disrupt the housing sector.

Nottingham, UK, November 23, 2022: The well-known non-profit organisation for construction consulting and management, BIM 4 Housing, is focusing on the “information” element of BIM. This innovative approach promises to disrupt the housing sector and let the stakeholders use BIM (Better Information Management) to provide safer, greener, and easy-to-maintain residential buildings.

Chaired by BIM veteran George Stevenson, along with the Director of BIM 4 Housing, Richard Freer, the organisation is doing a lot in the UK, as substantial changes in legislation are introduced to enhance building safety and prevent disasters such as Grenfell Towers.

In this context, George Stevenson, Chairman of BIM 4 Housing, quotes: “We want to focus on the Information element of BIM and how it can address the quality, cost, program, and safety challenges we are all wresting with.”

BIM 4 Housing offers a platform for passionate people to meet to create big changes. Everybody here works on a voluntary basis to help improve the housing and construction industry and to create a positive impact on its future.

In addition, BIM 4 Housing is supporting the L&Q/DLUCH Golden Thread Initiative in defining the challenges the industry faces post-grenfel- along with suggesting substantive solutions.

Stakeholders interested in sharing ideas and innovative methods and to talk, research, and discuss can contact this organisation by filling an online form on the website www.bim4housing.com.

BIM4Housing CONTRACTUAL WORKSTREAM November 7th

BIM4Housing CONTRACTUAL WORKSTREAM November 7th

Our most recent Contractual Workstream meeting looked at competence on a 3-dimensional basis.
As defined by and attendee:
‘’1 Organisational competence, which is effectively the quality management environment that you operate in, it’s the compliance environment, it’s what people are aware of. Do people know how to..? Is your organisation communicating effectively and supervising effectively?.
2 Occupational competences, which is the things that basically you’d be expected to do if you’re a surveyor or dry liner etc.
3 Functional competences, which is the nuance of your own particular role, so within every organisation it’s slightly different what that person might be expected to do.’’
The meeting was chaired by @Martin Adie
The subject of this meeting was Electric Strikes and Security Entrance Systems.
A video and High Points of the meeting are available on https://bim4housing.com/iq-contractual/
