Fire and Safety
AECOM India Pvt. Ltd.is doing the Fire Engineering for the Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir and aredesigning the fire and life safety system for the high-rise building. From the perspective of fire safety, the greatest challenge is the vertical evacuation of the building in case of fire due to the height of the structure. The Fire safety experts are contemplating aspects like refuge areas and escape corridors. Additionally the team is designing state of the art fire alarm and fire fighting equipment for the project. The expert team is also influencing the design of the project from the fire-safety point of view by suggestions for devising greater ‘escape capacity’ than ‘expected load’ in areas of assembly like the temple hall.
The company is also studying high-rise buildings world wide with a view to understand passive measures that are to be considered during construction stage in terms of fire safety.
