Course Description

There are many buildings in Ireland that require improvement works to meet fire safety requirements. Retrofitting and refurbishing existing buildings for fire safety is a greater challenge compared with designing a new building, so what specifics do you need to know?

This one-day course will take you through the key considerations in retrofitting for fire safety, including relevant legislation,standards, procedures, and best practice in construction. We will show you the key steps needed in creating practical solutions to unique problems that can-arise on a project, and exactly what should be involved in the process of upgrading buildings from a fire safety point of view. We will also explain evacuation strategies in retrofitted building both during construction and subsequent occupation. Delegate engagement will be facilitated with our highly practical trainer who is one of the leading fire safety experts in the country.
