PlanRadar & IFC Group team up for bespoke fire safety inspections solution

PlanRadar has announced a new partnership with IFC Group (International Fire Consultants), one of the UK’s leading fire safety consultancies.

From the end of August 2021, IFC Group will use PlanRadar in the field to manage inspections, fire risk assessments and audits across their projects globally. The company supports its clients at every stage of their projects, from design to delivery and maintenance, and on projects of all sizes and levels of complexity.

With increased scrutiny on building owners, developers and contractors to deliver the highest quality fire safety measures and assurance, IFC Group has found their expertise much in demand.

Glen Sumner, Associate Director at IFC Group, said: “After thoroughly reviewing PlanRadar in 2021, we’re very excited to roll out the software to our fire risk assessment teams.

“We had been looking for a software solution that was simple to use, that enabled consistency and that made it easy to share the results of assessments with clients. It was also important for us to be able to work with plans in hand and to be able to mark them up as needed. PlanRadar met all of our criteria and have done a great job in supporting our unique requirements.”

PlanRadar’s Matt Ryan, Country Manager for the UK & Sweden, said: “IFC Group initially approached us looking to move their inspections and risk assessment teams to a single digital platform. Since then, our agile development and customer success teams have worked closely with them to build cutting-edge fire inspection forms, up-to-date fire risk assessment documents and automated client-ready reports.

“Fire safety compliance and legislation is an ever-changing beast, increasing in its comprehensiveness and complexity almost daily – and rightly so. This comes with challenges and extended liabilities, so it’s important for us to stay up-to-speed and support the field at all times.

“Partnering with industry-leaders like the IFC Group helps us achieve that, and helps them increase their teams’ efficiency on the ground, with bespoke solutions to achieve detailed communication and reporting to clients and governing bodies alike.”
