FIREX to welcome world leading thinkers on high rise safety at Tall Building Fire Safety Conference 2022

SHP brings you the latest news and updates on what the seventh International Tall Building Fire Safety Conference has to offer as it prepares to join FIREX International 2022 at the ExCeL exhibition centre, London from 17-19 May 2022. At the event, speakers from around the world will provide valuable insights into current best practice and Tall Building Fire Safety innovation. 

Delivered over three days, the conference will focus on engineering, fire risk management and firefighting in the Tall Building environment.

Brent Brooks, leading expert on high rise firefighting from Canada, will be speaking at this year’s Conference

Each day will also feature topical and relevant debates, including:

  • Day 1 – ‘The single stair’ debate
  • Day 2 – ‘Is stay put still valid?’ debate
  • Day 3 – ‘Firefighting BA procedures above the fire’ debate.

Conference Director, Russ Timpson of the Tall Building Fire Safety Network, commented: “There has been another spate of tall building facade fires recently (Italy, China) and people are questioning the status quo regarding long standing aspects of Tall Building Fire Safety. The seventh International Tall Building Conference seeks to address these questions and find solutions for all those who reside in high rise buildings.”

Several international fire safety membership organisations are sending delegates to the conference, which should provide a good basis for analysing contrasting approaches and policies.

High profile VIP speakers will be delivering keynote addresses and providing insights into work underway around the world on issues such as façade testing, tall timber, evacuation of people with mobility impairment, fire risk assessment and firefighting.

Previous conferences attracted delegates from architecture, insurance, building control, construction, fire product manufacturers and firefighters. The 6th International conference in 2019 was attended by delegates from 18 countries. We hope this will be exceeded in 2022.

The full programme will be available shortly, but tickets are strictly limited and you are encouraged to book and commit early.

FIREX International puts third-party certification centre stage
