When you’re installing fire protection, you’ll need more than just the materials and a fire protection operative for the installation. There are many other little know checks and balances that happen along the way, which are designed to keep tragedies like the Grenfell Tower fire from happening. As technology evolves and new fire-proof materials emerge, we are one step closer to saving more lives in the event of a blaze. However, there are many people in the chain that need to ensure all steps are taken, that the materials and installation are compliant with modern building standards, and that all stakeholders, including the client, are all kept in the loop and have access to records should they need them in future.
Onetrace’s workflows and framework give your company access to do just this, and more. With true remote working, everyone is updated in real time, and because the apps are built for the devices they are used on, they are as smooth as butter and very easy to use. You can mark up drawings, take photos and upload them, and even pin locations, all from the app. But it’s not just for the operatives on site, it’s also fantastic for every level of management and coordination on a building project. From a bird’s eye view, you can see where everyone in the field is and what stage they are with their respective projects, and when it comes to performance reviews, you will be able to measure the efficiency of your team and where improvements can be made.
Who benefits from Onetrace fire stopping software, and how
The Installer’s Manager
As a project and/or contract manager, you will need to review all work carried out, assess the quality of the fire protection installation and monitor the progress of the project. Onetrace supports you in this, and also easily shows you the performance of each operative, the material that has been used, and supports work carried out in line with existing 3rd party accreditation standards.
The Main Contractor’s Site Manager
Onetrace helps main contractor’s site managers ensure that all work has been carried out correctly and in line with current third party accreditation standards. It also provides evidence for their company and client regarding work completed.
The Main Contractor’s Quality Manager
Like the main contractor’s site manager, the quality manager needs to ensure that all work has been carried out correctly and in line with current third party accreditation standards. Onetrace supports this, along with highlighting what materials have been used and assisting quality managers to ensure that fire protection is installed correctly.
The Building Control Inspector
We love these guys. They are there to make sure that all fire stopping has been recorded on the project and has been installed to meet with third party accreditation standards to ensure that everyone is safer.
The National House Building Council
Like the main contractor’s site manager, the National House Building Council (NHBC) will need to ensure that all installations are in line with current third party accreditation standards. But they are also focused on quality.
The Fire Risk Assessor
These guys come in to make sure that all fire stopping has been installed to an accreditation standard, but also look at the materials used and the quality of work completed.
Last but not least, the client. They will always be given guest access to Onetrace fire stopping software for the foreseeable future for their internal records on this project.
The Fire Stopping Software: Onetrace
While there are several options of fire stopping software out there, Onetrace is built with the RIBA Plan of Work and third party fire protection accreditations in the framework. And it works amazingly well on every platform since it was built for remote working, simply because fire protection operatives and all assessors and inspectors work on site, not in the office. Say goodbye to fussing with software on your laptop and taking your admin work home at the end of the day; Onetrace fixes all of those problems and then some.
See what all the fuss is about! All you have to do is get in touch or request a demo. And if you’re not ready to commit, that’s okay; you can try Onetrace completely free for 14 days with zero obligation or commitment! We’re sure you’ll love it anyway!
