USHA Guidance on the Preparation of a Generic Fire Design Guide

Tags: guide | guidance | USHA | Fire Design

The Universities Safety and Health Association (USHA) Fire Group identified that fire aspects of building design in the Higher Education sector frequently fail to fully meet the needs of our institutions and that resolution is often a difficult process resulting in less than ideal compromise and unnecessary demands on resources. In our view, use of institution specific Generic Building Fire Design Guides are the most cost effective method of facilitating the best design.

This document is an example to assist institutions in the development of their own. Even if not adopted as the basis for an institution’s guide, content will be useful in devising solutions for specific issues. This is not intended to be a ‘sector directional document’ or used for benchmarking purposes.
