Presenter: Brian J. Meacham, Associate Professor, Fire Protection Engineering and Architectural Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Many new commercial facilities are being designed and constructed with an objective of achieving a “green building” certification. There are many sustainable building features and products that singly or together may have an impact on fire safety unless there is a design approach which mitigates those effects.
The Fire Safety in Green Buildings Webinar will cover the results of a study commissioned by the Fire Protection Research Foundation to develop a baseline of information on the intersection of “green building” design and fire safety. The study identified gaps and specific research needs associated with understanding and addressing fire risk and hazards with green building design.
