Tall Buildings Fire Safety

18 Nov 2021
FIRE SAFETY STAGE

Opening Presentation - 'Modern Methods of Construction: How far have we come?' with Dr Jim Glockling

In this plenary session, the Fire Protection Association’s Technical Director Dr Jim Glockling will explore how the system of design, build and checking is completely broken within the UK and should not be trusted.  With the FPA’s deep rooted vision to protect not only lives but property, Dr Glockling will cover how the rules only seek to ensure the safety of the people living in the property – that the building is evacuated before it collapses in a fire. There is absolutely nothing in any UK regulation to protect infrastructure investments, to stop them burning to the ground, or to ensure the continuous availability of a building as a home or business premise.

This will then be followed by the 'Tall Buildings Fire Safety Panel', with Dr Jim Glockling, Emma Burdett, Alison Phillips and Farokh Azad.
