Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages
Bolehill Farm Cottages are a cluster of self-catering cottages set in Bakewell in the Peak District.
Having taken over the business in 2017, the clients were new to the world of fire safety. They wanted to fully understand the regulations and requirements to mitigate the risk of fire and keep their guests safe.
A thorough fire-risk assessment was undertaken on all the properties on Bolehill Farm. The assessment shaped the building work during the client’s refurbishment period, allowing them to ensure all new buildings are fully compliant.
All guests of Bolehill Farm can relax knowing there are plans in place should a fire occur e.g. visible evacuation plans. The clients themselves now have peace of mind, knowing their business is fully compliant with all fire-safety regulations.
“Mat is a true professional who delivers advice in a straightforward and practical manner. He took the time to understand what we wanted to do and guided us through the process in a pragmatic way. Our go-to contact for all things fire compliance!”

Roar Advanced Finishing
Roar Advanced Finishing Ltd is a Derbyshire company with over 30 years’ experience in the car refinish, automotive and composite finishing industries. Having invested heavily into research and development, fully automated computer controlled manufacturing and an offsite technical training centre; their objective is to produce solutions of the highest quality at a realistic cost to the end user.
The customer needed help to identify fire risks and install a full fire safety system, including fire extinguishers, in order to comply with current fire and safety legislation. With a small staff of 10 they were unable to commit sufficient time and resource internally to fire safety and needed to engage an expert Fire Engineer to offer advice and help them meet their legal requirements.
Our immediate task was to carry out a fire risk assessment to help identify on site in order to ensure the customer’s premises were fully compliant. We drafted detailed specification and tender documents, and, having collected quote for installation from a number of contractors, we successfully managed the installation of the full life safety system to the complete satisfaction of the customer.
The customer’s factory premises are now completely compliant with all fire regulations with a system of updates and annual checks in place and an up to date fire safety manual.
Being a chemical based operation, the work done by Synergy Fire Engineering has provided the customer with complete peace of mind that they are operating safely in order to protect their staff and assets.
“Synergy Fire Engineering were recommended to us by a contact of our Financial Director when we needed to have a full fire safety system, including extinguishers installed.
We had received differing advice from various fire and security companies and sought some expert advice on exactly what we needed to comply with the law. Synergy designed our life safety systems around the fire risk assessment they carried out, ensuring we got exactly what we needed.
With only a small staff, saving time was most important to us and we were delighted with the fantastic service and complete peace of mind that Synergy gave us. Highly recommended.”
