University of Queensland External Fire Spread course

Continuing Professional Development Course: ‘External Fire Spread Risk in Tall Building Design’

The purpose of this course is to provide practising engineers with the specialist knowledge to address the fire safety strategy of buildings and understand the implications of using cladding products capable of supporting external flame spread. The provision of design solutions for buildings requires competent fire engineers with the understanding of the key fundamental processes regarding the fire safety strategy, cladding design, and the interactions between the cladding of a façade and the building in the event of a fire.
