About this document
Fire designers need to adequately describe a building project's fire engineering design solution, and this practice note explains the type and extent of information required.
Fire safety design must be properly communicated and incorporated into a building's design documentation. The documentation must describe and justify the fire safety design to enable a building consent to be issued.
The New Zealand fire engineering profession and MBIE regard these guidelines as outlining the minimum level of documentation required.
This is a practical guide about the type of documentation required, and does not offer guidance in relation to specific fire safety solutions, methodologies, calculations or justifications.
