Property Risk Solutions



Commitment to compliance and fire protection control within the built environment has been an integral part of our core business function. Our knowledge and expertise in this field has afforded us an opportunity to broaden our business scope to include Property Risk Survey solutions on behalf of insurance companies and private organisations.

By integrating general property risk survey procedures and compliance with fire protection compliance, Firebrand is able to offer a comprehensive inspection solution that will increase the measure of verifiable findings in order to conclude a salient and quality driven Property Risk Survey Report. The client will now be able to mitigate risk even further, while reducing potential safety risks to personnel.
