  1. I have reviewed many FRAs over the years and many many times have come across risk improvements regarding upgrading or remedial works to enclose server rooms in fire resisting construction. I may be missing something here but there is no recognised guidance (that I have seen anyway) that requires a server room to be enclosed in FR. Server rooms are not on the list of special fire hazards within ADB. I understand that from a business continuity point of view it may be of benefit but I dont think it is a requirement for life safety. Your thoughts please.
  2. I have come across a premises that has a W/C and a kitchen which is technically an inner inner room. The MofE is through a store room then a shop. the kitchen is obviously an inner inner room but is there any guidance which allows W/Cs to be located off inner rooms?
  3. Hi, Clause 4.1 in above COP states ' manual fire detection' - I interpret this to mean fire detected by a person - or is it a typo - your views please?􀂋􀂕􀀃􀂗􀂕
  4. It is highly unlikely FR will be required for a small kitchen.
  5. I came across a large market hall constructed in approximately 2008 which has fire exit sliding doors linked into FA system that open on actuation. No EDR (typically green coloured box). Red manual call points installed adjacent to doors. As most of us will know, the sliding doors should have been provided with a manual EDR as well. Q1 - can BS 7273 Pt4 2015 be applied retrospectively, see RRO Pt3 (d)? Q2 - can any justification be made as to not fitting EDRs?
