Fire Protection for Social Housing
The legislation that governs the fire safety industry is under scrutiny. Therefore, a service that was once considered a minor package within a construction project is now a serious life safety issue. Fire Risk Assessments (FRAs) are uncovering increasing instances of non-compliant fire protection installations. Our clients now recognise that to deliver fully compliant fire safety solutions, they must revise how fireproofing is procured and select a strategic partner to deliver an enhanced, compliant service and provide a single point of responsibility.

Specialist Remediation and Repairs
At CLM Fireproofing, we are committed to raising standards on industry best practice. We are also passionate about safeguarding people living in social housing and care home residents. There is a growing need for residents post-Grenfell to feel safe and secure in the event of a fire. This has culminated in CLM Fireproofing launching a specialist remedial division to bring social accommodation up to fully-compliant fire protection standards.
A substantial part of our remediation services is identifying the absence of adequate compartmentation. Compartmentation is crucial for preventing the passage of flames and smoke throughout a building. Building owners are increasingly requesting comprehensive FRA reports, which we use in conjunction with our expertise to identify and repair any compartment breaches. All breaches and findings are then recorded on BORIS, our compliance management technology platform.
Collaborating with Local Authorities
At CLM, clients have peace of mind knowing we will be there to support them every step of the way – from the initial discussions through to project completion and handover. We also understand the sensitivity and professionalism required when working in occupied premises and our site teams always ensure they leave a project resolved and in perfect condition. We regularly conduct boarding, drylining and decorative works after install to restore residents’ homes and communal spaces.
We remain at the forefront of technical innovation and best practice. This puts us in an ideal position to share our knowledge of fire protection in the public sector. We provide technical support, on-site surveys and CPD sessions, guiding our clients towards full compliance with industry regulations.
We have extensive experience working with Local Authorities and Housing Associations across the UK. For example, we have recently completed works for Brighton & Hove Council, The Hyde Group, London Borough of Ealing, L&Q and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
