The Inspector

Our Senior Certified Fire Door Inspector is Paul Sansom DipFD, CertFDI, BSC (Hons). Paul carries out the majority of our fire door inspections, from large schools, office buildings and care homes, to smaller locations and construction sites all across London and the South East.

Paul has an honours degree in Building Surveying. He has been involved in building maintenance and surveying for over 25 years.

Paul has a Diploma in Fire Doors and is an approved Fire Door Inspector under the FDIS Scheme. To be approved, Exova Warrington, who are accredited under the Government-backed United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), independently asses the knowledge and competency of each inspector on a regular basis. Paul is also a member of the National Association of Fire Door Inspectors (NAFDI).

Paul has an IOSH qualification in Managing Safely. He is also DBS checked so can work in schools and care homes and other similar buildings.

In addition, Paul also carries a Construction Skills Cerfification Scheme (CSCS) card, which means he can work independently on construction sites.

Once the survey has been carried out it may be necessary to carry out repairs to your fire doors and escape doors. The report will provide details on the necessary repairs. Consequently these repairs should be carried out by competent persons. They could be carried out by your in-house team if you have one, or we can provide advice on suitable companies to carry out these works. Contact us now to discuss your immediate and future requirements for fire door checks, fire door inspections or fire door surveys.

Paul's FDIS Certification has been extended until the end of 2021. Click here for the FDIS letter of confirmation.
