On-Demand | Understanding the new Digital Management of Fire Safety Information Standard - BS8644-1

Watch this video to learn more about the new fire safety standard, why it was introduced, and how to remain compliant.


Dame Judith recommended the introduction of a digital ‘golden thread’ of information as a tool to manage buildings as holistic systems and allow people to use information to design, construct and operate their buildings safely and effectively. Out of this a new Building Safety Act and Digital Management of Fire Safety Information Standard has been created.

The BS8644-1 Digital Management of Fire Safety Information Standard which was published on 29th July, aims to provide a more detailed framework and approach for addressing the areas mentioned in the Hackitt report.

In this on-demand webinar recording, Symetri's Construction Business Area Director Richard Brayshaw, and Head of Construction Consulting, Steve Rudge discusses:

  • More about the standard – why it was introduced and what it contains.
  • About its links to the Building Safety Act.
  • What is required to remain compliant.



Richard challenges all those involved in the construction process to work smarter. Working as a Business Area Director for the Symetri Construction team, he aims to deliver world-class technology solutions and services which increase the capability and capacity of all those involved in construction.

He has a vast knowledge of the problems that can be encountered on projects of all sizes and provides suitable solutions. Steve’s primary expertise lies in the design, construction and management workflow of information and technology requirements to ensure a project meets the full requirements and data is reused through the delivery.
