Electrical

Installations that are older than 3 years should have a periodic inspection of all the MEP services. What has been found within the region are a number of installations that have been completed to a substandard and not correctly tested & commissioned from the beginning due to cost and tight deadlines.

This causes concern for the breakdown of equipment. One example being, transformer packs within lighting installations which can become faulty and cause a fire. The supporting systems which should activate upon such a situation limiting the damage to the demise and enabling safe evacuation of people, unfortunately, in many cases, has been installed in the same manner, which could be catastrophic should a serious fire occur.

It would be our duty to carry out an intrusive inspection of the demise highlighting potential risks and recommending possible improvements, these checks would be:

  • All electrical circuits installed and managed to the current standard, a complete test of these circuits would also be recommended and available. All drawings and load schedules verified with the actual installation.
  • All fire detection, firefighting systems and equipment checked to ensure they adhere to the local DCD requirements. All emergency systems functionally checked such as emergency lighting and all 3rd party equipment is checked to make sure it is interfaced and operates with the FACP.
  • All hazards found within the demise to be highlighted such as damaged equipment and appliances with PAT testing being available.
  • Air and water systems checked to make sure the areas are achieving the desired designed flow rates and cooling the premises efficiently.
  • Reports will be created as a formal document with all of the faults broken down into priorities complete with photographs.
  • Recommendations would be made for better energy efficiency, highlighting low cost high reward alternative replacements which would further ensure longevity of the installation at a more cost effective rate.

Mechanical

Installations that are older than 3 years should have a periodic inspection of all the MEP services. What has been found within the region are a number of installations that have been completed to a sub-standard and not correctly tested & commissioned from the beginning due to cost and tight deadlines.

This causes concern for the breakdown of equipment. One example being, motorized smoke fire dampers, these items of equipment are an integral part of a mechanical system, either opening or closing dependent on design to maintain the compartmentation and integrity of an installation from a fire life safety perspective. The supporting systems i.e. pressurization fans, smoke exhaust and fresh air handling units cannot provide the required fire strategy without correct installation and maintenance of motorized smoke fire dampers, which should activate upon a fire situation limiting the damage to the demise and enabling safe evacuation of people, unfortunately, in many cases, motorized smoke fire dampers have been installed incorrectly, which would be catastrophic should a fire occur.

It would be our duty to carry out an intrusive inspection of the demise highlighting potential risks and recommending possible improvements, these checks would be:

  • All electrical circuits, either monitoring through BMS or activated through fire alarm signal are fully functional installed and managed to the current U.A.E Fire and Life Safety Code of Practice, a complete test of the circuits would also be recommended and available. All drawings and load schedules verified with the actual installation.
  • All fire detection, fire-fighting systems and equipment checked to ensure they adhere to the U.A.E Fire and Life Safety Code of Practice, including but not limited to staircase pressurization, lift pressurization, smoke extract systems.
  • All hazards found within the demise to be highlighted such as damaged equipment and equipment to be fully inspected to ensure efficiency as well as functionality.
  • Air and water systems checked to make sure the areas are achieving the desired designed flow rates and cooling the premises efficiently.
  • Reports will be created as a formal document with all of the faults broken down into priorities complete with photographs.
  • Recommendations would be made for better energy efficiency, highlighting low cost high reward alterative replacements which would further ensure longevity of the installation at a more cost effective rate.
