The core focus of our experienced and enthusiastic design team involves the planning, organising and drafting infrastructure, the location of life safety equipment and routes of egress from a site.
EMERGENCY EVACUATION DIAGRAMS
Comply with Australian Standard AS3745 and form part of a buildings “Emergency Response Plan”. These diagrams are essential to successfully manage an orderly evacuation of the premises in an emergency and are specifically tailored to your facility.
FIRE DETECTION AND EWIS ZONE BLOCK PLANS
Comply with Australian Standard AS 1670.1 and Building Code Australia (BCA) spec E2.29. The purpose of these plans is to control the risks associated with non compliant or out of date documentation and specifically identifies the areas covered by each fire zone. The information contained in these drawings greatly increases the effectiveness of attending emergency services, fire wardens and maintenance organisations.
AS CONSTRUCTED/WIRED DRAWINGS
Ideally drafted at time of construction or installation, these drawings can be created retrospectively with a little research. A necessary aspect of Building compliance, the information contained within these drawings is required for system compliance and, further down the track, can save many hours in fault finding once the system begins to age.
FIRE HYDRANT BLOCK PLANS
To comply with Australian Standard AS2419, engraved block plans are required to be installed at the front of the building (or booster cabinet) and pump room where a fire hydrant system is installed with a booster assembly.
These plans allow the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES) to quickly identify the number and locations of all hydrants, hose reels and stop valves together with design pressure and flow rates. Also identified is the location of any hazards on site such as gas mains or volatile materials storage areas.
SPRINKLER BLOCK PLANS
In accordance with Australian Standard AS 2118, a plan of the risk on site (Block Plan) with the position of the main stop valves clearly indicated is necessary.
Drawings are placed adjacent to each set of installation control assemblies or group of valves where they can be easily seen by fire fighters and other emergency services. These plans also include emergency shutdown instructions for the Automatic Sprinkler System.
