The primary aim of any fire engineering consultancy is of course to maximise fire safety within a building for its occupants. However, there is another benefit to using the tailored approach to fire engineering – value engineering.
The UK Government released, in February 2017, their official line on how the UK could best address the problems currently found in the UK housing market in their Housing White Paper.
The main theme of the White Paper was the statement by Theresa May that ‘We need to build many more houses, of the type people want to live in, in places they want to live’.
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.
This webinar focuses on fire engineering in open plan residential apartments.
Watch it here today to learn how the fire safety design of open plan layouts in residential buildings can be achieved with the applicable guidance and approach, designing them to overcome the limitation of the guidance.
It is natural to want to have the appropriate level of fire safety in every one of your projects. Allowing you to meet building requirements and keep your building occupants safe, whilst also making the use of your space and showcasing your fantastic design.
This webinar focuses on fire safety design in residential buildings.
Watch it here today to see how you can achieve building regulations approval and high safety standards. All whilst maximising space and reducing build and fire safety system costs for your building.
One of the key objectives for our fire engineers during the early stages of any project is to spot areas of the design where alternative approaches to that suggested in the Approved Document B of the Building Regulations 2010 (ADB), or other common design guides, need to be developed.
