Fire Safety Engineering Assessments – A Risk Based Practical Approach

Objectives of workshop

  • To discuss the fire risk analysis and mitigation process from a fire safety engineering perspective.
  • To develop a performance based alternative solution comprising active and passive fire safety systems and management measures to support them.
  • Achieve levels of fire safety beyond what the Building codes prescribe by adopting risk assessment approach.
  • Case study of a (hypothetical) multi-storey building constructed mostly of Cross Laminated Timber.

The workshop format and program

The workshop will be conducted in an interactive format. The case study information will be forwarded to the participants prior to the workshop in order to familiarise them with the hypothetical project and enable them to prepare for the workshop.
