Meeting Building Regulations is not enough to minimise fire risk. Regulations do not cover property safety nor construction stage. Construction stage fire safety is the remit of the HSE.
The HSE say: “All those making design and procurement decisions that significantly affect fire risk should consider and reduce the risk and consequences of fire during the construction phase through DESIGN.” (HSE emphasis).
To do this, choose non combustible materials: choose precast and masonry. Read more.
On November 3rd the resilience themes including overheating, fire, flood and durability will be explored in a one day conference by The Concrete Centre and the Modern Masonry Alliance.
