B3Living, a Hertfordshire-based housing association, have awarded their full portfolio of High-Risk Buildings (HRBs) to Oakleaf to deliver safety case solutions. The project will see Oakleaf build safety cases and generate comprehensive safety case reports for each one of B3Living’s HRBs.

The B in B3Living stands for ‘better’, and as such they were impressed with Oakleaf’s unique approach to solving the challenge of building safety cases at scale and delivering up-to-date safety case reports on demand to ensure better compliance.

That’s because, at Oakleaf, we do things differently.

Our consultants work closely with each client to understand them and their buildings. Our groundbreaking methodology is made possible through a technology-led central safety case ecosystem. This innovation ensures that our clients have the ability to produce a ‘live’ on-demand safety case report, and also have the capability to add to, and reproduce, their safety case report as often as they need, all at the touch of a button. These unlimited revisions ensure better compliance and bear no additional charge.

Director of Fire, Graham Oliphant, is delighted that B3Living have decided to take advantage of the benefits choosing Oakleaf will deliver for them:

“We’ve worked with the B3Living team for some time delivering their FRA programme and they saw that this was a game-changer. In adopting this approach, rather than just engaging someone to provide them with a static report, our solution will save them money by allowing for updates and changes over time, which is to be expected as a building is a dynamic system. This also minimises secondary charging from the Regulator. In the race to seek compliance, I think a lot of businesses have not yet appreciated this additional cost.

“B3Living’s commitment to going beyond basic standards of compliance really sets them apart. We’ll be working closely with them over the coming weeks and months to ensure that the residents of their HRBs are front and centre as we provide reassurance on critical safety measures.”

Here’s a glimpse of what the Oakleaf approach will deliver for B3Living:

  • Off-the-shelf digital golden thread & full audit trail: Ensuring the integrity of evidence and future-proofing against staff turnover or lost PDFs in email inboxes.
  • Dedicated ‘ecosystem’ joint working: Promoting collaboration among Building Safety Managers, Project Managers, and Consultancy Partners for seamless communication.
  • ‘On-demand’ building safety case report generation: Enabling substantial time and cost savings.
  • Assurance Framework Linkage: Minimising costs related to regulatory compliance.
  • Fire consultancy support throughout the journey: Our experts will be by their side every step of the way.
