This extract from s4.5.5 Fire Engineering - Issues Group Reports from the Steel - Framing the Future project report explains that generic building codes may not provide the most suitable solution for todayâ€™s steel buildings. Fire engineering can be used to ensure the structural solution is developed with respect to each particular buildingâ€™s characteristics, resulting in efficiencies of design, cost, aesthetics and program. The full section provides a summary of fire engineering to assist developers, designers and authorities to understand the methodologies used to assess steel buildings and the benefits of fire engineering.
