Protection of Adjacent Buildings During Construction

Day-to-day monitoring and mitigation of the fire risk during construction is a responsibility of the owner, and typically carried out by the contractor.  However it is becoming more common for local authorities to require a Fire Protection Engineer or other professionals to assess the risk of fire exposure onto adjacent buildings, and propose additional methods for protection when a building under construction is not sufficiently separated from adjacent property. 

In this presentation, John Bolduc from CFT Engineering will discuss the Code requirements pertaining to protection of adjacent buildings during construction, the challenges in defining reasonable and appropriate methods that should be considered adequate to address protection of adjacent buildings during construction, and how this requirement of the contractor and owner is being audited by local authorities.
