The dangers of fire in buildings are lethal and catastrophic and the need to design buildings to limit those dangers is as important now as it always has been. Fire is a concise, highly accessible and up-to-date first point of reference for architects to all aspects of fire safety legislation. Organised according to the "RIBA's Outline Plan of Work", the guidance covers both the 2006 edition of Part B of the Building Regulations and the significant new requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
Compliance with fire safety legislation can have a profound influence on the design of buildings and can result in considerable amount of abortive effort if an architect fails to address and incorporate solutions as the design develops.
Part of a series of books that comprise short, easy-to-use topic based guidance to legislation for architects, Fire is an essential desktop aide-memoire for those with responsibility for ensuring the life safety of their clients in the event of fire.
