Fire Safety Design in the Office

Fire Safety Design in the Office
Duration – 60 mins

What responsibility do designers have fire safety and what guidance can we use to achieve compliance?

In this presentation we look at responsibility for design, as well as look at the different standards, from Part B, BS9999 to BS7974.

Looking deeper at Part B, we check a notional plan reviewing a range of topics, including:

  • Occupancy levels
  • Exit widths and number
  • Number of stairs
  • The need for lobby protection
  • Phased evacuations
  • Inner rooms
  • Fire exit signage
  • Cavity barriers
