Temporary Building Fire RA and exit numbers / travel routes

Post by TWDB »

Hi All,

We are proposing to undertake excavation works under a temporary structure - Odour control etc (warehouse type steel frame fully enclosed with vacuum extraction ).

Where would I find information on the required fire controls, number of exits, travel distances to exits for such a structure i.e ware house structures - all to go it a Fire RA and recommendations.

Thanks
