Accounting for fire safety engineering using Building Information Modelling
European national building regulations on fire safety are different from country to country, making international collaboration demanding, costly, and risk prone. FireBIM aims to harmonise and implement the fire codes of its participating countries in an open-source, web-based BIM platform for fire safety assessment that facilitates (inter)national fire safety documentation and compliance from the early design stages. This will enable collective interpretation of fire regulations and automated compliance checking of buildings against fire safety regulations. As a result, design teams will be digitally assisted to create safer and better buildings cost-effectively.
