OP3 Protection of Adjacent Buildings from Fire




Intent 1:

To exempt certain exposing building faces from the requirements of Sentences and, (2) and (3), which would otherwise require a fire-resistance rating, on the basis that the building has a low fire load, the exposing building face is of noncombustible construction and the limiting distance is not less than 3 m. These conditions are to limit the probability of the spread of fire from the building to an adjacent building, which could lead to damage to adjacent buildings.
