The DALP office units required an enhanced means of escape strategy with a high level of compartmentation from the commercial warehouse units they were located. A high degree of active fire protection systems, including very early warning aspirating smoke detection (ASD) within the units to give occupants an early warning of an outbreak of fire. Many units also required sprinkler protection. The ORS Fire Safety Team was appointed based on their vast experience of complex mixed-use buildings similar to those housed at DALP. The ORS fire engineers worked closely with the developer and design team to ensure the units were compliant with fire safety and disability access.
