Session 05: Fire Safety Challenges of Green Buildings
Date & Time
Wednesday, October 4, 2023, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

According to a report by the National Fire Protection Association (Fire Safety Challenges of ‘Green’ Buildings and Attributes), there can be unintended consequences of focusing on a single attribute of building performance, such as sustainability, without also considering potential fire safety challenges. This session will discuss some of the green building materials or systems that may perform differently than conventional from a fire safety standpoint. These include: electric vehicles and charging, PV roof panels, energy storage systems, construction safety, and other hot topics. Any facilities engineer in a green building should keep informed about pertinent facts concerning that building. Find out details in this session.
