From Facilities Manager of Listed Commercial Building, Plymouth.
Chris of Abacus Property Services recently completed a full renovation of all Fire doors at Plymouth ****** House a commercial property in the centre of Plymouth. From the start Chris was very helpful and knowable of the specific problems involved in renovating a listed building. The main Issues we had were badly warped doors and bringing all Fire Doors to FD30(S). Chris was able to do this utilising most of the existing doors, the ones beyond repair he provided purpose made Fire doors to match the existing listed historic Doors. The work was all completed on time and to a high standard with minimal disruption to the residents, and due to Chris determination to renovate existing doors and not just replace it was excellent value.
Independent Fire Risk Assessor (Torbay)
As an Independent Fire Risk Assessor covering the Southwest of England, I have frequently had the opportunity to see the structural fire safety work carried out by Mr. Chris Farr of Abacus Property Services. I have also been asked by clients to inspect work previously completed by Abacus. I have always been impressed by the standard of work, both the materials used and in the finish achieved, which satisfy the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. I believe that Mr Farr is one of only a limited number of tradesmen who has been formally trained to undertake the fitting of fire doors and structural fire compartmentation work. With the use of his mobile workshop he is able to keep disruption and ‘mess’ to a minimum. I have every confidence in recommending him for this type of work.
