Ensuring Best Practice for Passive Fire in Buildings

3.37 MB

This Guidance is intended to offer architects, designers, constructors, building occupiers and others, effective and feasible recommendations and selection criteria for the use of Passive Fire Protection (PFP) systems in buildings. It is the outcome of a three year ‘Partners in Innovation’ project, which was partly funded by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM) (formerly DTLR).

The main objective of the project was to determine if problems existed in the specification and installation of PFP systems in buildings and to analyse the reasons behind any problems, with the intention of producing effective and feasible guidance on the use of PFP. The guidance is also intended to have the additional benefit of providing Building Control Bodies and Fire Safety Officers with summarised, accessible, and meaningful information that will enable them to more accurately assess the appropriateness of the passive fire protection systems intended for the building.

The work follows the report of the Construction Task Force, chaired by Sir John Egan in 1998, and fits into the ‘Rethinking Construction’ initiative and its three simple principles, Client leadership, integrated teams throughout the delivery chain and respect for people. The objectives of this initiative are to achieve radical improvements in the design, quality, sustainability, and customer satisfaction of UK construction by assisting best practice and so providing improved life safety and best value.
