Approved Document B: Fire Safety: v. 2
Buildings Other Than Dwellinghouses: Incorporating Insurers' Requirements for Property Protection
Presents the extra measures needed for property protection and business resilience beyond those in the 'Building Regulations Approved Document B, Volume 2'. This guide includes RISCAuthority's 'Insurer Requirements for the Implementation of Fire Safety Engineering Solutions'.
The threat of fire is a major concern to construction clients, architects and other construction professionals. Protecting property as well as people from fire is a key business objective and designing in appropriate measures can considerably reduce the cost of implementation. The extra measures needed for property protection and business resilience beyond those in the "Building Regulations Approved Document B, Volume 2" are clearly and logically set out in this guide. Essentially reproducing the official Approved Document in full but enhanced by comprehensive annotations by RISCAuthority (formerly InFiReS), the guide provides the design community with a single point of reference in a familiar format.
This invaluable guidance is further supported by the inclusion of RISCAuthority's 'Insurer Requirements for the Implementation of Fire Safety Engineering Solutions', which considers the property protection dimension of engineered fire safety designs.
