51 CHAPTER 8 8.0 8.1.1 REGISTERED INSPECTOR (FSE) When are Registered Inspectors (FSE) required? For projects containing alternative solutions, the areas under the performance-based assessment has to be inspected by a SCDF registered RI, who must also be a FSE. His scope of work involves the checking of on-site installation of fire safety engineering works for compliance with the approved PB plans, FER and Operations & Maintenance Manual and to surface irregularities to SCDF. RI FSE (a) Performance-based projects would require RI (FSE), RI (Arch) and RI(M&E). If the RI(Arch) is also a FSE, he/she can be responsible for both the fire safety works listed in Part I of the First Schedule of the Fire Safety (Registered Inspector) Regulations and the performance-based works of the project. See Annex H. RI (Arch) (b) If the RI(M&E) is also a FSE, he/she can be responsible for both the fire safety works listed in Part II of the First Schedule of the Fire Safety (Registered Inspector) Regulations and the performance-based works of the project. See Annex H. RI (M&E)

52 CHAPTER 9 9.0 9.1 METHODS OF ASSESSMENT FOR COMMON ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS This chapter recommends methods to assess common alternative solutions. It covers: a. Objectives to be achieved b. Design fire scenarios c. Tenability limits d. Acceptance criteria e. Sensitivity analysis Where a FSE is assessing alternative solutions that are not in this list, it is recommended that the FSE consults SCDF before embarking on the FEDB. The methods of assessment listed serve as a guide and the FSE shall still be responsible for the design solution. Common alternative solutions 9.1.1 EXAMPLE 1 Smoke Control [Enlarged smoke reservoir (Area, length), or Atrium design (Width, area)] or Enlarged Fire Compartment Smoke Control [Enlarged smoke reservoir (Area, length), or Atrium design (Width, area)] or Enlarged Fire Compartment (a) Root objectives The root objectives are : (i) R2.1 - Occupants must be able to escape to a safe place, directly or through a protected exit, before untenable conditions are reached during a fire emergency. (ii) R2.2 - Fire-fighters must be provided with adequate means of access for fire fighting and rescue operations within the building. (iii) R7.1 - Maintain tenable conditions for evacuation of occupants and protect them from injury arising from the effects of fire.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
