THEME 2 – FIRE SAFETY
Project T2-3 – Fire Design of Prefabricated and Modular Buildings
PI: Hajiloo Hamzeh & Sam Salem
The design and construction of prefabricated and modular buildings vary greatly across applications and typically do not follow the same principles as on-site construction. As such, detailing between components and modules needs to be carefully considered at the outset, vetted and then well-coordinated by design professionals so that the expected level of fire safety is ensured for the completed structure. The outcome of this project is appropriate details and associated design tools for fire safety design of prefabricated and modular wood buildings. This project will be conducted in collaboration with sub- project T4-1-C.
