Facades and Fire Safety: Routes to Compliance
With an ever increasing demand for affordable homes and commercial developments where space is limited, developers need to be able to build upwards; creating high-density communities in high-rise buildings. This seminar looks at ways to ensure these constructions adhere to complex fire safety regulations. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand legislative requirements for the UK and how they differ in England, Wales and Scotland
- Understand the available routes to compliance, how to interpret the different types of guidance and know what is deemed acceptable by fire safety engineers, building control bodies and warranty and insurance providers
- Understand new developments in the insulation and facades sector and the use of rigid phenolic insulation in rainscreen and masonry facades
- Understand design issues to consider when specifying insulation in rainscreen and masonry facades systems
- Understand common misconceptions when it comes to high-rise buildings with a habitable storey 18m or greater above ground level
