Design and Future Trends of High-Rise Residential Towers – A Comparison Between UK and German Regulations

Presented by: Karl Wallasch, Dipl.-Ing., CEng

High-rise residential towers are becoming more common globally. Traditional fire safety codes do not address specific fire safety concerns for tall and super tall buildings. Some code development has taken place to address residential buildings with height of more than 30m or 50m.

The practical application and development of fire safety strategies for high-rise residential towers often require the use of modern fire engineering techniques.

This presentation will outline basic guidance applicable for high-rise residential towers in the U.K. and Germany. A comparison of the different fire safety philosophies between both countries will be made to show different approaches taken based on the same case study. This includes comparison of evacuation strategy, compartmentalization, compartment sizes, internal fire spread, fire brigade access and facilities, fire safety systems etc. The presentation includes furthermore highlighting of possible future trends in the design of fire safety strategies for high-rise residential towers.
