Performance based design using fire engineering principles
A performance based approach is able to provide minimal impact on the functionality and aesthetics of the building spaces but extend the design limits imposed by conventional requirements. Recommendations will comply with requirements of NFPA 5000, subject to the local requirements of the Local authorities.
CFD Smoke modelling (e.g. atriums, retail malls, basement carparks, road and rail tunnels)
This is a detailed assessment of the smoke management requirements using CFD (computational fluid dynamics). Rationalization of the provision of smoke exhaust systems for these areas can produce cost-effective design options in an optimal manner that minimizes the requirements for smoke exhaust provisions, yet achieve the required level of fire safety.
Egress simulation of evacuation capability (e.g. high-rise towers, underground stations)
Travel distance and exit width limitations, may be rationalized such that occupant safety is maintained but a more flexible design is provided. By rationalizing core and stairs placement, the design may be developed to provide an efficient layout whilst being fully compliant to occupant safety provisions with minimal impact on the tenancies and operation of the facility.
Sophisticated CFD and dedicated SES modelling techniques for tunnels and underground stations shall be used to determine the optimal smoke management requirements to achieve the required level of acceptance for safe egress of occupants. Conditions for tunnels and stations under normal, congested and emergency modes will be simulated. Fire scenarios under emergency mode for the tunnel section between two exhaust/ supply shafts as well as stations fires will be assessed.
Structural fire protection
This is an assessment of the required fire resistance levels for structural members, including the potential for reduced protection for steel members, where the fuel loads and type of construction supports this option, resulting in significant cost/time savings, subject to the requirements of the local authorities.
This is an assessment of the unique façade features and any external openings to assure that risk of fire spread is kept to compliant levels whilst producing the least amount of impact to the design.
Fire and Life Safety report
This is a Fire Safety Strategy in relation to fire Prevention and Control. The fire safety strategy shall incorporate the latest design techniques at an international level that best deliver the architectural and client requirementsfor the development and design. It also compiles the firefighting provisions coordinated from various design disciplines.
Project Safety Review
Risk assessment services to meet design and construction safety requirements. The philosophy is to ‘reduce risk at source’.
