Passive First was engaged to provide onsite inspections detailing the condition of fire dampers and surrounding services penetrations in 206 apartments as well as all common areas including the basement car park. Passive First conducted extremely professional and detailed inspections and promptly followed up with detailed and professional reports which could be understood by both myself and the Executive Committee Members.  I have no hesitation in recommending their services to anyone requiring them.

Building manager - The Darlington

When our strata became aware of a requirement to furnish council and the Fire Commissioner with Annual Fire Safety Certification and we engaged Passive First … Passive First undertook the extensive repairs on a staged program over four years . With mutual pre-planning, all inspections have been carried out as scheduled. The report/quoting has been professionally detailed with references to Australian standards and/or building codes.  On all occasions a senior manager has been in charge on the job and a genuine concern for the convenience of residents.

I have utilised the services of Passive First for a number of years now, and I would not hesitate to recommend their passive survey and rectification services as they provide cost effective pricing in a highly competitive industry. I have found Aldo, Rod and the team to be professional and the quality of the reporting is very good and is reasonably priced.
