However great your business is there will always come a time when you need to rely on the expertise of an external contractor. When the boxes that need to be ticked effectively and with confidence are all about fire safety, who you choose to work with really matters.
Sports Direct are the UK's number one sports retailer, currently operating more than 420 stores in the UK alone, and 270 stores in 19 other countries. In a field where competency is key, recommendations are a vital part of making the right choice and Synergy came highly recommended.
Sports Direct were opening a new 100,000 sq ft building and needed to ensure that all staff were trained and fire safety procedures put in place. This was something we were able to deliver reassuringly on time and with total compliance.
The brief was not only met, but exceeded in terms of understanding by management and team of their liability relating to Fire Safety Order regulations.
This translates into ongoing safety on site, new bespoke and robust procedures as well as engagement from the team with how important the safety of the site is and their confidence to manage this effectively.
Synergy Fire Engineering have been working with Sports Direct to advise on Fire Management and to further develop the Fire Strategy for what is now reported as the largest Head Office and Warehouse Facility in the UK.
Sports Direct is a dynamic and volatile company with constantly changing demands. Synergy Fire Engineering have consistently responded effectively to our exacting requirements, understanding complex issues and providing practical solutions achieving first class results within very challenging time and cost constraints.
Synergy Fire Engineering have always provided the efficient support necessary for a 24/7 business. Their consultants are effective and capable, communicating well with both Senior Management and Project Managers soon receiving their respect and confidence.
On a personal level I have always found Synergy Fire Engineering to be very professional and responsive having the depth of expertise necessary to provide me with the advice and support to effectively manage the requirements of our large portfolio of properties and their associated services.
