Event Summary

The recently published Hackitt Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety makes recommendations for the prescribed use of building information modelling (BIM) systems, to assist in ensuring that building owners and occupiers are fully aware of the nature and style of construction used and, associated safety systems installed. The FPA, the UK's national fire safety organisation is delivering a one day seminar to discuss the benefits of such an approach. Alongside the steps that can be taken during maintenance, repair or refurbishment works, appropriate decision making ensures that standards of safety and resilience are not compromised.

This event will identify some of the methods and materials being commonly utilised in the construction of our housing, retail, education, health and warehouse premises. It will address the drivers for choosing one method or material over another – be it speed, cost, environmental impact etc and explore the challenges each present during the construction phase, but more importantly on the safety and resilience of the premises in use from risks such as fire and flood. Issues associated with the use of renewable energy to heat and cool such premises will also be explored.
