What is The True Cost?
10
Fires in Universities
Oxford University fire could have been started by
a student making breakfast A fire which has
devastated six flats at Oxford University is
believed to have been started by a student as he
attempted to make breakfast. June 2008
Animal rights fanatic 'planted home-made petrol
bombs at Oxford university', court hears
University fire bomber convicted Mel Broughton,
who has been convicted of conspiracy to commit
arson and two associated offences, was not a
peaceful protestor as he claimed but someone who
took an active part in a fire bombing campaign at
Oxford University, Said Crown Prosecution Service
lawyer Paul Harrison. 13/02/2009

Two Important Questions
Why are new buildings not always fire
compliant? Why are fire compartments not always
adequately maintained?
13
Less Resilience To Fire
It would not be unreasonable to assume that
during the past decade, our commercial building
stock has become less resilient to fire and
this goes some way to explaining the steep
increase in fire losses. Roy Watkinson Technical
Commercial Insurance Director, AXA
Insurance Source FRM Journal, March 2011
14
Building Regulations Requirements
If a fire separating element is to be effective,
every joint and imperfection of fit, or opening
to allow services to pass through the element,
should be adequately protected by sealing or
firestopping so that the fire resistance of the
element is not impaired Every compartment wall
and compartment floor should form a complete
barrier to fire between the compartments they
separate and have the appropriate fire
resistance ..... there should be continuity at
the junctions of the fire-resisting elements
enclosing a compartment and any openings from one
compartment to another should not present a
weakness Building Regulations Approved Document
B B3 section 10
15
Traditional Build
Approved Document B was developed for easy and
forgiving masonry construction . .
16
Modern Build
. . with modern methods of construction the room
for error is small if not microscopic. Dr Jim
Glockling, Technical Director, Fire Protection
Association

3rd Party Accreditation
The BRE Approval process involves a whole series
of rigorous checks which are on-going it is
because of this assessment process that the LPCB
Approval Mark is recognised worldwide as a badge
of quality for Passive Fire Protection
Installation.

and Areas of Strategic Importance?
38
Fire Doors
Even the simplest design of fire door can rarely
tolerate error in installation and one hours fire
resistance can easily be reduced to less than ten
minutes, but you wont necessarily be able to see
the problem unless there is a fire. Peter
Barker, Chiltern International Fire

Fire Door Inspection Scheme
Achievement of First FDIS Diploma Improves
Service to Clients Checkmate Fire Solutions Ltd
Compliance Manager Clive Reilly, seen being
presented with his diploma by Gary Amer, Chief
Executive of the Guild of Architectural
Ironmongers, is the first industry professional
to have successfully passed the FDIS Diploma in
Fire Doors. The Diploma is a key part of the
recently launched scheme that aims to transform
knowledge and understanding about the critical
role of fire doors and is believed to be the
first of its kind in Europe. Says Clive Since
Checkmate introduced a service for the
maintenance and management of fire doors we have
been keen to have a qualification that proved our
competence in this area. Taking the FDIS Diploma
confirmed we knew a lot and also enabled us to
rectify gaps in our knowledge, broadening our
expertise, which will benefit our clients.
42
On-going Inspection Re-Certification
The LPCB Certificate states that it only remains
valid providing that the passive fire protection
is checked on an annual basis any damage or
defects rectified by a competent person in line
with the Regulatory Reform Order 2005
43
POOR MANAGEMENT - the consequences can be tragic
Owners of fire death Penhallow Hotel to be
prosecuted The owners of a Newquay hotel which
caught fire, resulting in three deaths, are to be
prosecuted for fire safety breaches, Cornwall
Council says. Sep 2010
Six killed in tower block blaze Three children
and three adults have died after a fire swept
through a tower block in south-east London. July
2009
44
Staying Within The Law
Where necessary in order to safeguard the
safety of relevant persons the responsible person
must ensure that the premises and any facilities,
equipment and devices provided in respect of the
premises under this Order.. are subject to a
suitable system of maintenance and are maintained
in an efficient state, in efficient working order
and in good repair. Regulatory Reform (Fire
Safety) Order 2005
45
Fires destroy peoples lives
Arrests over Warwickshire warehouse fire which
killed four firefighters. Feb 2011
Charges over Warwickshire firefighters'
deaths Three Warwickshire fire service
managers are to face charges of manslaughter
by gross negligence over the deaths of four
firefighters. Feb 2011
46
Efficiency savings in Universities
we need to deliver efficiencies and reduce waste
in public spending, delivering an additional 5
billion of efficiency savings in 2010-11 John
Denham, Secretary of State Universities must
reduce the administrative burden whilst
maintaining proper accountability for the use of
public funds, ensuring they make efficiency gains
where possible John Selby, Higher Education
Funding Council
