With townhouses becoming increasingly popular to meet the rising housing demand, EDC have remained at the forefront of the fire safety requirements.
This townhouse development presented some challenging architectural features, required to maximize the available space. These features resulted in fire rating lower roofs to protect the adjacent townhouse property against vertical spread of fire.
EDC provided clear and concise advice from concept to completion, to achieve the required fire rating and post-fire structural stability while avoiding common pitfalls. EDC actively engaged with council representatives to ensure an acceptable solution was achieved. The client was grateful for EDC’s prompt problem solving and on-site attendance, ensuring no delays at each stage of construction.
