Published in 2007, BB 100 advised on how to design school buildings so that they satisfied Building Regulations Part B, “Fire Safety”. It needed revising for a number of reasons, but particularly because some of its content was out of date, it needed simplifying and it was far too long. These changes had to be made without diminishing or compromising the overriding importance of ensuring the safety of pupils, staff and visitors if a fire does occur in a school.
A new version has been drafted which achieves those aims and around half the length of the original. SPACES have been asked to give feedback as well as a number of interested organisations, professional bodies, practitioners and contractors. If you wish to be involved please contact Mark Dunne, Technical Director. The consultation document can be found here.
