Project Description

Firespec have carried out thorough dry film thickness (dft) testing on a large percentage of this structure, which is one half of the £228 Million City of Glasgow college new campuses development. The contract involved more than 25,000m2 of structural steel coated with intumescent for 90 and 120 mins fire protection. What should have been a routine independent inspection contract turned out to be much more as Firespec were able to point out mistakes in some of the site paperwork which would have led to an incorrectly protected structure had we not been involved. Main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine and their sub-contractor Fire Integrity, to whom Firespec were contracted, were very glad of our extensive experience and being able to spot the problems and assisting in guiding the contract back on track. We are confident that the structure is now protected to the correct specification.
