Typical Examples of Fire / Alternative Engineering

There are a vast number of building and design elements that might be analysed as part of an alternative solution. Each project is unique and must be considered under a vigorous procedure before it can be approved as a viable alternative solution. Some examples of typical elements that are difficult or expensive to achieve deemed to comply status are:

  1. Travel to exit distances
  2. Fire compartment area and/or volume
  3. Underground car park size/arrangement
  4. Fire rating of separating structures
  5. Mechanical smoke exhaust provisions
  6. Installation of fire sprinklers
  7. Structural integrity
  8. Site arrangement and access provisions
  9. Retention of heritage features/fabric
  10. Intended use of the building or parts of the building
  11. Adjacent buildings and structures
