Fire Safety Management

Since the introduction of the 1990 Building Regulations which introduced the Fire Safety Certificate as a mandatory element of commercial, industrial, residential, retail and leisure and amenity developments, OLM (previously trading as McBains Cooper) has been extremely successful in completing commissions as Fire Safety Consultants.
