Fire Safety Challenges of ‘Green’ Buildings and Attributes
This webinar will present highlights from a comprehensive information review of how the landscape of fire safety challenges of ‘green’ attributes of buildings has developed since 2012. It is based on a global information search into: fire events involving ‘green’ and/or sustainable building materials, systems and features; emerging ‘green’ building materials, systems and features; and research, regulatory changes, engineering approaches, risk mitigation strategies, and firefighting tactics associated with fire challenges with ‘green’ and/or sustainable building materials, systems and features. While the research is comprehensive in scope, it is not exhaustive in detail, given the extent of advancement in these areas which has occurred since 2012. And, while significant advancements have been made, gaps remain, and strategies for proactively incorporating fire performance into development of new ‘green’ building materials, systems and features (product development) are lacking, the tools to proactively assess the fire performance of ‘green’ building materials, systems and features at the product level (e.g., fire performance testing), and as installed in buildings, are lacking, and a broader building regulatory framework and design philosophy for achieving sustainable and fire resilient (SAFR) buildings is also lacking.
