Since the tragic circumstances of the Grenfell disaster, designing for fire and construction material choice in all its facets has become a focus of design teams across the world.
In balance, the global demand for energy efficiency and net zero carbon pulls designers in an equally important direction.
This webinar with Farrat looks, through the lens of Structural Thermal Breaks, at the multi-role demands of building components to deliver best in class performance, in sustainable credentials, and building physics, without compromise on fire safety.
the latest developments in UK Fire and Building Safety regulations;
current requirements for specifying safety critical building products;
up to date thought on the UK standards for construction material performance information;
current direction and time frame for Structural ‘Green’ Steel and the journey towards Net-zero.
Designers, Architects, Engineers, and Specifiers interested in optimising energy efficiency and maximising fire safety in the design of high-rise buildings.
