Air, Water and Fire Compliance Awareness Seminars - Delivered by Swiftclean

Various dates and locations

The problem with some challenges is that they're invisible day to day.

Either they are hidden away inside ductwork, as with fire dampers or grease in kitchen extract systems; or they are genuinely undetectable to the naked eye, as in the case of legionella bacteria in water.

Swiftclean run free seminars at your premises to help you stay compliant.

SPAB Fire in Old Buildings

Suite 7, Fazeley Studios, Birmingham

6 December 2017

Drawing on lessons learned from recent high-profile fires, this one day seminar from the SPAB will look at all aspects of fire prevention and management in historic buildings, as well as approaches to reconstruction when the worst happens.

Morning sessions from expert speakers will include understanding the main causes of fire in historic buildings, what detection and suppression systems best suit them, how to balance fire protection systems with original building fabric, and an overview of new research.

The afternoon will consider immediate responses to fire and debate the SPAB approach to dealing with the aftermath of a fire in a historic building. This will be followed by case studies illustrating different approaches to rebuilding, before a final discussion opened out to the audience.

The seminar will take place at Fazeley Studios, Birmingham, easy walking distance from both New Street and Moor Street Station.

For further information, download the Fire in Old Buildings flyer or visit the SPAB website.
