Steel for Life has partnered with Building magazine to deliver a series of written CPD modules. Each module contains a full technical article followed by a link to a multiple-choice questionnaire which can be completed on-line. All are fully CPD accredited.
The series is aimed at design and construction professionals and will cover a variety of topics.
The third article titled Steel and Fire Protection and was released in Building magazine in February 2018.
About the CPD: Steel and Fire Protection
Much is known about structural steelwork in fire. Rigorous testing, including full-scale building tests in the late 1990s, has led to the development of robust modelling and analytical techniques that are subject to constant refinement. Fire protection accounts for approximately 10-15% of the cost of a steel frame for a typical multi-storey commercial building.
This CPD provides an introduction to fire protection of new steel-framed buildings. It will provide an overview of:
• The performance of steel in fire
• Legislation and standards on fire resistance
• Fire resistance periods
• Fire protection options for steel-framed buildings
