Conceptual/Rational Fire Design

Our design services start at the very outset of a project with the conceptual/overall design of the fire protection systems.

Designs would take into consideration inputs such as:

  • Fire risk analysis results;
  • Comparison with regulatory standards and requirements;
  • Best practices, and;
  • Client requirements.

The National Building Regulations make provision for two design approaches, which can be adopted when designing the fire protection measures for a building.

These are: 

  • Compliance with prescriptive rules as laid down in SANS 10400 Code of Practice; or 
  • Performance-based design (Rational Design).
