Fire safety in historic buildings, CCTV and security systems installations

Sensitive upgrades and integrated fire, security and visitor management

Historic buildings and their contents form a significant and irreplaceable collection of architecture, art, libraries, archives and heritage to be enjoyed, preserved and protected for future generations.

Fire is the single greatest threat to the fabric of any building and its contents. Whilst many historic and religious buildings are exempt from building controls, commercial and public buildings are covered by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order and the Fire Safety Act 2021. Heritage sites also have complex multi-usage requirements with protection of kitchens, electrical plant rooms, restaurants, archive and storage vaults, exhibition rooms and rooms with high and ornate ceilings posing unique challenges.

Ace are sensitive to the unique challenges of fire safety and security in historic buildings.
