Atelier Ten provided strategic fire engineering services for the world class TECA / P&J Live development. This state-of-the-art events complex includes a 15,000-capacity arena, multi-functional conference suites, function rooms, business meeting rooms and 33,000m² subterranean exhibition space and car parking.
Atelier Ten also provided fire engineering services for the adjoining 200 bed Hilton Hotel and 150 bed Aloft Boutique Hotel.
Due to the size and nature of the development, the generic technical guidance for fire safety within the Technical Handbook was not considered suitable for application.
As a result, a performance-based approach to design was adopted – supported by advanced fire and smoke modelling – allowing maximum flexibility in design while ensuring the primary objective of life safety and compliance with the Mandatory Standards of the Building Regulations.
