Industrial fire detection, conveyor sprinklers and Alternative Solution.
FDC provided an Alternative Solution in accordance with the BCA for buildings and structures at the site as well as specifications for the installation of fire detection and conveyor fire sprinkler systems.
Due to the classification of all structures as Class 8 the fire engineering had to assess occupant safety for structures that differ considerably to normal commercial construction.
The analysis considered the safety of occupants in steel structures up to 60 m in height, along conveyors and in the central iron making unit. An analysis of the fire loads and fire scenarios was needed to justify the proximity of structures to each other, the long egress paths and complex interconnection of structures.
