Fire engineered solutions use various engineering techniques and tools to achieve a safe premise.
Fire engineered solutions use various engineering techniques and tools to achieve a safe premises for example, smoke extraction systems modelled alongside evacuation analysis could be used to ensure that a particular area can be evacuated safely allowing design freedoms in other areas such as reduced escape widths.
An ‘Alternative Solution’ is considered when compliance with the provisions of the Building Regulations is not available or physically impossible due to building constraints.
An Alternative Solution provides the opportunity to consider an alternate design solution ensuring the building meets with the functional requirements set out within the Building Regulations or HTM. It is always advisable to include relevant stakeholders within the design process at the correct time to prevent valuable input being missed.
