Richard started with Blues Electrical Ltd in 2010 bringing 12 years’ experience of fire alarm installation. Richard made a flying start when tasked with taking over the installation of Custom House, a refit of a homeless shelter in Cardiff City Centre. At the end of the project the fire alarm system was commissioned by Protec Fire Protection Ltd and it was noted by the commissioning engineer that the job was finished to a much greater standard than previously seen.
This was prime opportunity for Richard to take the installations to the next level. As time progressed, Richard built great relationships with the management team and various fire alarm and security companies.
As Datacomms became more prevalent, Richard showed great interest in becoming fully trained in this aspect to enable us to carry out the installations in house. Starting off with the CNCI (Certified Network Cable Installer) Copper and Fibre training programme, he passed with flying colours. After gaining even more experience over the years and completing many projects to a high standard, it was time to consider setting up a separate division for the Fire Alarm and Datacomms works.
In 2019 Blues Fire and Integrated Services (BFIS) was formed and leading this company is Richard Morris and Marc Gunter. With the idea of branching out into Passive Fire Protection (Fire Stopping), Marc wanted BFIS to be able to undertake passive fire protection works therefore it was imperative that Richard became bmTrada UKAS Certified.
‘Our mission from the outset was to be able to offer principle contractors a complete package including 230v, ELV, Passive Fire Protection, design, fully managed and seamless integration between the contractors, on-site management and our installation team.’ Richard Morris. Director of Blues Fire and Integrated Services.
BFIS has the advantage of knowledge from both sides of the industry and now armed with a reliable and trustworthy team, along with a full schedule of certifications, accreditations, and regulatory bodies backing us up. BFIS will grow into a large and reputable company.
