–––––––––––––

There's been a lot of talk about the risk of fire in multi storey buildings over the past 3 years. Most of that discussion has focused on combustibility of aluminium cladding and for obvious reasons.

But what about all the all of the building materials that make up a building? How well do we know the composition and fire risk associated with the hundreds of materials that go into creating a building and the risk of flammability when different materials are brought together.

Fire safety in commercial buildings starts with the architect/designer- designing a building in such a way that fires won't take place, selecting materials to restrict fire spreading and ensuring systems are in place to put the fire out quickly if and/or when one starts.

This seminar to be led by Luke Curtis along with WG Fire Engineering team will look at:

  • Pre design considerations for fire safety
  • Material selection - combustible v non combustible
  • Overview of materials - glass, steel, timber, plaster, fabrics, coatings
  • Building code - overview of deemed to satisfy provisions
  • State by State legislation changes on combustible materials and it's implications
  • Fire safety in extra tall buildings
  • Key differences between active and passive fire protection
  • The importance of collaboration between architect, builder, certifier, fire engineer and fire brigade
  • Role of the fire engineer and the process in assisting clients from beginning to end


Cost to attend is $65 plus GST, or book a group for 10 for $550 plus GST.
