One Day Workshop Understanding a Fire Engineering Design Report: October and November 2022 - multiple dates and venues

NELSON : MONDAY 31 OCTOBER 2022,

DUNDEIN : TUESDAY 9 NOVEMBER 2022,

WELLINGTON : WEDNESDAY 16 NOVEMBER 2022,

ONLINE : THURSDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2022

The functional relationship between a Fire Engineering Design Report (FEDR) and a building’s compliance schedule is a fundamental and frequently overlooked
contributor to an IQP’s role.

A FEDR forms an integral part of the documentation detailing a building’s consent, construction and compliance history. As an IQP, you can use information contained in the building’s FEDR to inform decisions around how you conduct inspections, what you should expect to find and how you interpret features of the building.

FEDRs cover Clauses C1 – C6 of the Building Code, and as such have implications for IQPs in terms of intended fire design and specified systems. As both the FEDR and the building’s compliance schedule are living documents, knowledge of the fire strategy and design that have been specified in the FEDR will allow an IQP to be adequately prepared for
site inspections and be equipped to recognise where deviations and/or replacements that may affect compliance have been incorporated into the building’s final construction and use.

Learning outcomes:

• Understand the fire-specific information that leads to particular construction decisions
• Extract essential information and recognise specified systems from a FEDR to inform the IQP inspection process
• Trace the requirement for specified systems from legislation, through standards, to installation and commissioning
• Recognise a FEDR as a living document throughout the lifetime of the building.

The course includes a post course assessment. On completion of the assessment, you will be awarded a Certificate of completion and 8 hours of CPD
