Effective passive fire protection is an ever-evolving issue for our industry and one that we are continuously looking to address through the development of new products and technologies. But we know that it’s more than just a box ticking exercise for contractors – it’s the focus of long-term planning and design, crafted by architects to secure a safer future.
At our #FirestopSeminar in conjunction with RIBA Journal, our panel of speakers discussed how the industry can raise the bar in firestop design and examined the architects role post-Grenfell.
The three leading presentations from our expert speaker panel communicated the main learnings from the Industry Response Group’s Raising the Bar report, followed by the evolving impact of Grenfell and what it means for architects, as well as a Designer’s Guide to Firestopping in Cross Laminated Timber Buildings.
The seminar concluded with a panel discussion focusing on the role of architects in specifying and managing firestop products and systems, an ever more essential element in an architect’s skillset.
