Building safety case report: what’s included?

From October 2023, building safety case reports will be a mandatory requirement under the Building Safety Act.

If you build, convert, or own a residential structure that is over seven floors or 18 metres (whichever is lesser), to comply with the Building Safety Act, the Principal Accountable Person will be legally required to complete a safety case report.

Read on as we help you understand what this report is and how it fits into the broader Building Safety Act.

Building safety case report, what is it?

The safety case report must document an evaluation of all building safety risks and all appropriate measures that have been or will be implemented to address these. It’s a vital document that will form part of the golden thread of information required by the Building Safety Act 2022.

The case report requires detail, providing an in-depth understanding of a building’s safety measures to ensure resident safety and mitigate potential risks.

Risk assessment: Protecting lives and properties

The risk assessment part of the building safety case report evaluates and mitigates potential risks linked with fire safety and other hazards. It scrutinises the building’s design, construction, and fire safety measures.

Comprehensive risk assessments should be carried out, identifying vulnerabilities, and practical recommendations made to enhance safety standards.

Everything from the efficiency of fire suppression systems to evacuation procedures should be meticulously examined. Professionals will need to attend your project site, look at relative documents, and ensure you have addressed any fire safety risks identified in the report.

Structural defects assessment: durability and safety

The structural defects assessment element of the safety report identifies any existing or potential issues that may threaten the building’s structural integrity. This involves a meticulous review of construction techniques, materials used, and adherence to building regulations.

An expert team should conduct thorough structural inspections to identify any deficiencies that may need attention.

At BuildSafe, we understand the importance of a structurally sound building. Our industry partners collaborate to identify and rectify any defects, ensuring the long-term safety and durability of the structure.

In addressing these issues promptly and effectively, you can provide peace of mind to residents and protect your property’s value. Once we’ve made all those checks and everything is compliant, we’ll ensure it’s all confirmed in the building safety case report.
