From a fire safety perspective One of the first fire decisions that must be made for all projects, is whether or not to implement a ‘code-compliant’ or ‘fire engineered’ approach in the creation of a fire strategy. Whether it is a retail unit, commercial office, factory or residential apartment block – this decision is vital.
Car park ventilation systems are required to achieve two objectives. We have put together a graphic to explain what these objectives are and help you decide what ventilation system is best for your specific needs.
A fire engineered solution can achieve architectural design aspirations, commercial objectives and higher standards of fire safety. We’ve put together a graphic outlining the benefits of fire engineering:
Involved in every construction project, architects have a keen eye for detail, and invest vast amounts of time and energy into designing the aesthetic elements of a building.
Beyond the aesthetic design of the building, they must also consider other aspects such as structural integrity, costs, sustainability and fire safety.
Although all of these factors are part and parcel of the creation of a new building and architects are aware of the fire safety requirements that are put in place and strive to create safe buildings, the involvement of fire engineers can help to achieve increased design freedom without compromising on safety.
