How fire safety might change construction in the next few years?

Livestream Event |14 April 2021

10:00 - 14:00

Fire Safety is an essential yet complex area all builders must address. As high-rise development increases so does the chances of fire hazards. In recent times, London has seen some of the worst high-rise building fires. This ultimately led to the widely known Hackitt Report.  

 

The first major part of implementing Hackitt was the combustible cladding ban which is well underway. However there have been several queries and challenges in implementing the ban causing confusion and hesitation, for example regarding laminate glass and decking. 

 

At this livestream event we look to uncover the what and the why of the grey areas of fire regulation changes. We will also help our audience understand the importance of having a fully traceable information train or “Golden Thread”. 

 

The “Golden Thread” is a concept identified in the Hackitt Report as being particularly important in residential construction. If kept up to date, the “Golden Thread” of information lives through the life of the process and becomes the measure against everything to be tracked.  

 

When this is done in the digital form, it can be fed into the different design, manufacturing and construction applications. Creating a library of information that all fits together. It extends to scheduling and delivery of information at the handover stage and into the final part of the golden thread in asset management applications. 

 

This will result is greater compliance and understanding of fire risk in residential buildings, enabling stakeholders to reduce risk and enhance building safety and quality.
