Fire Safety

That Convinces

Fire events with catastrophic consequences as well as our continually increasing safety requirements mean that the demand for fire safety is growing. At the same time, contemporary architectural projects in new as well as existing buildings require creative fire safety concepts.

It is important that the measures agreed upon in the fire safety concept and the quality ordered by the client are consistently implemented. In addition, those involved in construction projects are shifting their focus towards the correct integral interplay of the various measures related to fire safety.


Quality assurance, expert site su­per­vision

implemented effectively

Construction site inspections, construction site quality assurance, expert site supervision, fire safety implementation guide, fire safety training, quality assurance at the construction site, quality assurance levels 1 to 4 (QAL 1, QAL 2, QAL 3, QAL 4), site supervisor training

To ensure that the planned measures from the fire safety concept are actually implemented and therefore effective, quality assurance is indispensable when it comes to fire safety. This is the only way to achieve a building free of fire safety hazards and ensure that occupation can commence on time.

As part of a hazard-preventing approach, quality assurance ideally already takes place starting in the planning and tendering phase. At Gruner, quality assurance at the construction site (random on-site inspections or expert site supervision) is supported by state-of-the-art hardware and software.

For example, we have been and continue to be significantly involved in the development of the software THEMIS by GRID-IT. THEMIS is the software for safe, fast, digital documentation and the securing of evidence – including for fire safety.
