OVERVIEW

Fire Check Consultants (FCC) were engaged to provide a performance solution in relation to maintaining fire separation between town houses and car parks. The window openings that overhang the car common car port at first floor level, were not allowed through a fire separating wall.

FCC worked with the client to provide a cost effective, yet compliant solution, clearly detailing the additional forms of protection/ separation required to meet the performance requirements. Avoidance of the spread of fire, to and from unit and common carport, and from unit to unit, was achieved by alternative construction methodologies to those presented in the National Construction Code (NCC) prescriptions.
