The aim of this course is to “up-skill” those working within the fabric of the building to ensure compartmentation and structural fire safety are not compromised during or after works have been carried out. The course will provide technical knowledge and an introduction to Nullifire fire-stopping products which can be used during the life of the building to maintain building regulations, provision of compartmentation and structural stability in the event of a fire.

Passive fire protection plays a crucial role in the safe construction and maintenance of all building types. However, when it comes to offsite construction, it is a well-known fact there are numerous fire safety challenges to be considered at the outset in order to achieve a safe, compliant installation that will protect the module and its inhabitants throughout the lifetime of the structure.
In recent years, the construction industry has faced significant challenges regarding building safety, particularly in the realm of fire protection. The Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017 exposed critical gaps in building safety regulations and sparked a nationwide call for change.
Whilst design guidance that support current Building Regulations are very much applicable to offsite construction, according to a recent technical bulletin from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation, aspects of fire safety such as compartmentation and structural fire protection present compliance challenges that are not addressed by current design guidance solutions.
