Here at JST Construction, we install compliant and industry-leading fire doors in Warrington. We ensure that all doors are as fire proof as they physically can be. It’s this desire that has led us to strongly developing our capabilities in this area. Over the past few years we have spent a lot of effort, time and resources to become leaders in the industry for fire safety, protection and compartmentation. JST Construction Warrington is now fully certified by BM Trada to cater for commercial buildings in regards to installing fire doors, building fire proof spaces and more. BM Trada is an audit and certification organization that helps regulate the national and international standards of safety in buildings, including ISO 17021, ISO 17024 and ISO 17065m therefore this certification is extremely important to us.
With the tragic and awfully sad events of Grenfell Tower making headlines back in 2017, we felt something needed to happen in the industry and buildings needed more protection from fire. So, following from receiving our BM TRADA certification, we trained and developed in the skill of fire protection and started working with commercial spaces and buildings in particular. After all, if you’re a business or organisation using a building for work, then hundreds of people at one time could be at risk from fire.
We’ve grown a fantastic portfolio of clients in Warrington in this area and have loved working with them and educating teams in the area of fire safety and security.
It is worth mentioning however, that we do take enquiries for all types of buildings so if you’re unsure on whether you’re building needs looking at then please get in touch to check on 0151 355 9232 or use our contact form.
