Plan of Work for Fire will offer updated fire protection advice

RIBA will be unveiling its latest fire guidance at a special conference next month as part of industry efforts to “fill the gaps” in the UK’s fire protection processes.

The Plan of Work for Fire aims to ensure there is a detailed specification for fire protection at the design stage of a building and a schedule for fire protection throughout the construction and facilities management process.

The document, which RIBA started work on late last year, will be published at the ‘Protecting Lives: Design & Construction Post-Grenfell’ conference, to be held at the institution’s London HQ on 12 June.
