Our aim at CORE is to facilitate our clients’ compliance needs across a range of legislation which require assessment of risk and demonstrate that risks are effectively controlled.

Emergency Management Planning

We understand that the Emergency Plan is not simply an additional document for legislative compliance but an important part of a holistic fire and life safety strategy, preserving life safety and serving a purpose far greater than merely meeting regulatory obligations.
Our strength at CORE is the understanding of safety principles and individual building designs, enabling the most tailored Emergency Planning available. Venturing outside of prescriptive building design must be matched with an intelligent and bespoke Emergency Plan and we are perfectly positioned to deliver this.
