About This Project

Performance based design for a high rack storage facility

A purpose built warehouse facility for Toll IPEC (approximately 16,000 m2) consisting of a warehouse and bulk handling area, mezzanine and office areas exceeds the floor area and volume limitations for Type C fire resisting construction therefore requires specific fire safety features in accordance with the large isolated building provisions of the BCA.

The performance based design demonstrates the effectiveness of the automatic fire sprinkler system coupled with the large smoke reservoir created by the high ceilings within the proposed facility is sufficient in maintaining tenable conditions with respect to occupant life safety and fire brigade intervention.

Liaison with Department of Fire & Emergency Services (DFES) and the Perth City Council formed part of the early stakeholder discussions.
