In the world of Strata management, ensuring fire safety can be as complex as a maze. For PICA Group, this maze came with its own set of twists and turns. In our 40 years of fire safety services, we’ve proudly worked with PICA Group and their subsidiaries for 20 of those years – expertly guiding them through various challenges of fire safety in Strata.

The Challenges of Fire Safety in Strata

Managing fire safety in Strata is a team game. It involves various players – from building owners to local councils and compliance teams. As a leader in Strata management in Australia, PICA Group juggles these dynamics daily. With our support, they’ve been able to streamline this process.

PICA Group’s biggest hurdle? Managing varying interpretations of fire safety regulations by different contractors. Conflicting opinions on compliance, late cancellations, and incorrect council schedules only add to the complexity. This confusion often led to time-consuming back-and-forths and, at times, mistrust from building owners.

The Root of the Challenge

The root of the problem lies in the industry’s fragmented approach to fire safety. Previous sign-offs turn into present defects, creating a ripple effect of misunderstandings and delayed communication. PICA Group’s experience reflects a broader industry issue where clarity and consistency are often amiss; something we are trying to actively change.

Here’s where Betta Fire Protection steps in. Specialising in Strata fire safety, we offer everything from routine maintenance to inspections and repairs. We understand the pressures Strata managers face, from tight schedules to compliance fines.
