Project Description

The Raithwaite Estate comprises two small luxury boutique hotels, a health and beauty spa with leisure facilities and separate eco lodges and holiday cottages. DFC were appointed to provide fire safety design solutions to a varying extent on each of the buildings on the estate.

A Specific performance based fire engineering solution was required within the Raithwaite Hall hotel, to enable the hotel to offer an increased guest suite size, with non-typical layouts.

A fire strategy was developed for The Keep hotel, which enabled the client to adopt an intimate reception/lounge atrium with open balcony escape from guestrooms and hotel facilities.

A fire risk assessment was produced for each of the holiday cottages on the estate, which also formed a base framework to enable the client to conduct future annual assessments in-house.
