Description
Driven by the visions of UAE President, His Highness Khalifa Bin Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and UAE Vice President, Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheik Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, United Arab Emirates has raced against time in its rapid development and prosperity for the past years. There has been vast realization of world class landmark projects all over UAE such as super high rise buildings, transportation network, amusement parks, industrial facilities, warehouses, places of public interest and many more prospective developments. UAE now presents itself as a central hub for commercial, industrial, residential and tourism developments involving high density of population and activities. The dreams and aspiration of UAE government and the community thus calls for high level expertise of planning, architectural, engineering and construction work which unconditionally must collaborate with a high standard of Life and Fire Safety to ensure the protection of precious life and property.

Unfortunately, tragic lessons were learnt from recent building and structural fires. The aftermath was devastating, resulting in the damage to assets and loss of lives. Fires in a building with inadequate fire protection features can present severe problems and create complexity in a fire fighting operation. This inevitably causes deficiency in the protection of occupants from fire and smoke during the egress or evacuation.
