Product Description

The design of building structures for fire has a significant impact on the way structures are designed, procured and specified in many countries. New procedures, advanced analytical methods and improved risk assessment techniques are now available to support performance-based design for the fire load case. This guidance has been prepared to provide the engineer, architect, regulatory authorities and other construction industry professionals with the inspiration to develop safer and better value solutions for the performance of building structures during fire. There is a considerable opportunity for the engineer and the architect to work together to develop improved designs based on new and developing technologies within a sensible regulatory framework. This publication should be of benefit to:

  • Architects looking for better solutions 
  • Controlling authorities wishing to ask the right questions  
  • Engineers seeking to develop new skills and approaches as technology in fire safety engineering develops
  • Contractors, manufacturers and suppliers who want to appreciate the broader approach being adopted with a view to adapting their products and future development
