ASFP announces Firex International Workshops

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) will be hosting a series of Practical Workshops and Lunchtime Lectures each day at Firex International on 18-20 June 2019 at ExCeL London. The Workshops and Lectures will be offered in a special presentation area within the ASFP Passive Fire Protection Zone on stand FX 228. 

The focus for each day will be on a different aspect of construction, with two ASFP Practical Workshops delivered by the Association and its members:

Day 1 (18 June) Planning Passive Fire Protection for new builds:

The ASFP will be offering a sandwich lunch from 12.30 each day followed by a Lunchtime Lecture delivered by a guest speaker who will provide a key insight into the industry. The Lectures will run from 1-1.45 each day and will consider Fire safety legislation and the Impact of Hackitt on cladding considerations. On 19 June Andrew Alexander, Head of Strategic Policy, Oversight & Risk Strategy Division, Building Safety Portfolio, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government will provide an overview of the Government consultation on fire safety legislation 

The ASFP Passive Fire Protection Zone aims to help visitors to gain a greater understanding of the essential role of passive fire protection within today’s built environment and offer advice for all involved from designers, specifiers and contractors, to building owners, risk assessors and facilities managers. It brings together in one location a number of ASFP member companies, representing a cross section of the passive fire protection sector.
