Leviathan is a multidisciplinary engineering consultancy service with particular strengths in PFI contracts, facilities management and fire safety compliance. Our specialist blend of experience in design, construction and maintenance enables us to effectively advise on and manage large scale build and maintenance contracts delivering cost and time savings for all our clients.
Our unrivalled reputation for in depth analytical PFI contract reviews has enabled us to find previously undetected construction and maintenance defects which have substantially reduced both the financial and technical risks to our clients. Our early intervention often minimises the need for dispute resolution or litigation, but in the event that this is necessary we provide professional and confidential advice to ensure the best outcomes. During our involvement on any PFI project we engage with and guide our client’s staff to encourage improved contractual awareness and management.
The successful operation of any building is dependent on effective and efficient facilities management. Leviathan’s holistic approach to FM review and monitoring allows us to offer bespoke guidance on improving operational efficiency and management of a full range of building systems and services. Our technical excellence in lifecycle management, asset optimisation and preventative maintenance regimes affords our clients the comfort of high performing compliant facilities.
With the growing awareness of the need for compliant fire safety measures our fire consultancy services have evolved and expanded to provide our clients with a full scope of fire safety advice. We are able to provide an extensive technical advisory service on passive and active fire protection and the maintenance of these systems, support and advice on fire service enforcement and an FDIS certified fire door inspection service with a bespoke turnkey solution for the direct supply and management of remedial works. Our fully chartered engineers also provide Authorising Engineer (Fire) services to a nationwide portfolio of NHS Trusts, MOD contractors and local authority schools.
Leviathan are currently instructed as an Expert Witness for a commercial core participant at the Grenfell Tower Inquiry and have extensive experience of identifying cladding non-compliances across a range of sites for public sector and FM clients. This affords us a unique position as a leading authority on façade compliance and the need for an interlinked and interchangeable building fire management system.
