Reducing Fire Spread in High-Rise Residential Buildings

Free Event – The Gherkin, London

Following the disaster at Grenfell and the numerous balcony fires that have happened during last year, we have been working with a number of highly respected leaders in the industry to try and improve fire safety. We are hoping to drive change to the British Standards, fire regulation and increase fire awareness.

The theme for the event is reducing fire spread in high rise residential buildings. The event will start with an industry leadership roundtable panel discussing key direction for the future from 8:00AM-11:00AM – by invitation only.
