Building a fire safe future

The best construction companies globally have fire safety as part of their workflow. As your trusted partner in digital quality assurance, we want to help you better plan fire safety and ensure a seamless flow of information from design to build. Watch this webinar to learn more about this issue and how Solibri can help you.

Designing fire safety involves many disciplines and stakeholders such as architects, designers, structural and MEP engineers, HVAC, product manufacturers, fire protection consultants, and more. Each discipline creates their own model, which means that the potential for errors is very high.

Building a fire safe future

During this webinar we discuss the expectations of the UK government from the construction industry in terms of fire safety and the importance of integrating fire safety starting from design. We also talk about mitigating risk and automating intensive manual processes, such as firestop compliance, and providing quality information as part of the golden thread.

This webinar advises companies to make fire safety an integrated part of their quality assurance checklist, and to bring all the models from different disciplines together for highly advanced model checking and quality assurance, making it easy for the BIM manager, engineers, designers and other involved parties to collaborate and solve any found fire safety compliance issues.

Discover the award-winning firestop compliance review process created by Ridge & Partners using Solibri's rule-based checking.
