Performance Based Fire Safety Design


The key objective of performance based fire safety design is integrating the principles of fire engineering with relevant software applications or calculations to ensure compliance with the 2013 Codes of Practice for Fire Precautions in Buildings, also known as the Fire Code. This new approach offers alternatives for ensuring adherence to the Fire Code, which is crucial for saving lives and minimizing damage to assets during fire outbreaks in buildings.

Developing an ideal performance based fire safety design requires a proper understanding of fire science, common and complex fire protection issues, fire safety systems designs among other fire management concepts. As such, it is a procedure that can be quite challenging to building owners and business managers. The best way to avoid all the hurdles in developing a performance based fire safety design is to engage Qualified Persons.

Developing a Performance Based Fire Safety Design

Performance based approaches to fire safety design in buildings is a new and unique concept with qualitative provisions for the fire Code. However, it leaves it to the building practitioner (building owner and Qualified Persons) to choose the various means of achieving those provisions. Qualified Persons, acting on behalf of building owners or contractors are expected to provide substantial evidence with relevant fire safety engineering theories that the proposed new, additional or alteration works comply with the objective of the Fire Code.

The process addresses a wide range of areas including the design of fire protection systems, detection systems design, structural fire resistance systems, uncertainties in design and functions. To support the development and assessment of design, we will also conduct fire safety testing and inspection. For motivation, our consultants will provide samples of buildings that have adopted performance based fire safety design as listed by the SCDF.

Our goal is to help you with identifying the primary attributes of performance based fire safety design, reviewing the merits and demerits of the design over the current one and, also offer steps or frameworks for implementing performance based fire safety design. Through inspiration from past projects, our expertise, intuitive fire safety design tools and your imaginations, we are confident to develop a highly efficient and functional performance based fire safety design for every office, hospital, shopping complex, industrial building and other public spaces.

To us, developing an ideal performance based fire safety design is all about ensuring compliance with the Fire Code and, creating the best conditions for saving lives and reducing damage to property during building fires. We emphasize feasible strategies that will truly meet your goals as well as fire safety standards with the least logistical and financial burden. Due to the added flexibility in the application of fire safety in buildings, you can opt for a prescriptive approach, performance based approach or both. The benefit of that is it ensures you get a customized design tailored to your building and needs.
