Details :

 Prescriptive requirements are given in the Code of Practice for Fire Safety in Buildings 2011 (the Fire Code) to achieve an adequate level of fire safety in buildings. In reality, building professionals sometimes face genuine hardship in complying with the prescriptive requirements during the design of building. Fire engineering design provides an alternative solution for achieving fire safety in buildings. However, adoption of fire engineering approach is not without difficulties.


In this seminar, the speaker will explain the principle behind fire engineering approach, introduce the fundamental considerations to develop a Fire Safety Assessment Report (the FSAR) and the difficulties commonly encountered in adoption of fire engineering design for a building. Example of an industrial building adopting fire engineering design will be presented to demonstrate and illustrate the contents of a typical FSAR.
