ASFP to exhibit at London Build

London Build 002The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP), the UK’s leading trade association for passive fire protection, will be exhibiting on stand H63 at London Build in London’s Olympia on 15-16 November.

Our team will be showcasing the ASFP’s range of technical guidance documents, member services and passive fire protection (PFP) training courses. Our courses include classroom training and our revolutionary e-learning platform. We will provide full details of our Foundation courses, which are available as classroom or online training, and enable learners to study towards the Institution of Fire Engineers Level 2 and Level 3 Certificates in PFP. We will also highlight our new ASFP Firestopping for Installers course, which equips learners with the essential knowledge and skills to install different types of firestopping products.

Our experts will be available to discuss the latest regulatory developments and to answer all your PFP queries. They will highlight the competence and professionalism of ASFP members. It is mandatory for all ASFP member companies to demonstrate that a proportion of their employees have been suitably trained and/or have achieved appropriate PFP qualifications providing assurance that they have appropriate skills, competence and professionalism for all your passive fire protection needs.

ASFP will also be presenting on the event’s Fire Safety stage on both days. At 1pm on 15 November the ASFP’s Managing Director Mike Ward will be joined by Kate Milford, Director of Milford & Marah, to describe the Association’s work to promote and improve competence across the PFP sector. They will also launch the first step on the ASFP’s Competency Pathway, the Competence Framework. This provides a free library of information, bringing together definitions to provide a benchmark for competence for all PFP activities. The Framework details activities specific to PFP, presenting these in seven domains across the building lifecycle.

Our conference input will continue at 1pm on the 16 November, when the ASFP’s Head of Technical Dr Andrew Taylor and Technical Officer Stuart Southall will explain the ASFP’s approach to the Golden Thread and digital data.

The ASFP aims to help visitors to gain a greater understanding of the essential role of PFP within today’s built environment and offers easy access to advice, products, services and best practice in relation to ‘built-in’ fire protection. A visit to the ASFP stand is ideal for all involved in construction, fire safety and building maintenance and management, including facilities managers, contractors, services installers, Responsible Persons and designers.
