Fire seminars go live
Presentations from this year’s Fire Safety Engineering seminars, hosted by Tata Steel and the British Constructional Steelwork Association, are now available online at: www.steelconstruction.info/ CPD_Fire_Seminars_2013
The seminars were held to educate architects and engineers in the principles and techniques of fire safe designs and to explain how these are applied in practice.
Speakers from Tata Steel and BCSA made presentations on legislation, trends in fire protection and the impact of full scale fire tests.
Leading fire engineering practitioners Arup Fire, WSP, Buro Happold and Vulcan presented using relevant case studies to illustrate current best practice, including a detailed review of the structural fire engineering of The Shard in London. The Association for Specialist Fire Protection also outlined their work in maintaining standards and supporting specifiers.
The online presentations are free to view and available to all. Registered users of www.steelconstruction.info will also be able to download a CPD certificate for their training records.
