Conference
CTBUH Scandinavia Symposium - Fire and Tall Buildings. 2nd symposium. March 9, 2017
Note

Michael Strömgren, a research scientist from the Research Institute of Sweden, shared the sentiment that there is a lack of prescriptive codes for tall buildings in Scandinavia, particularly for buildings above 16 stories in the case of Sweden.  Strömgren noted that Nordic countries are early adopters of new fire safety engineering methods; however, lack of experience in tall buildings remains a challenge.  Amongst other key issues, Stromgren emphasized the importance of phased evacuation in the event of fire and considered the potential use of elevators as a means of evacuation.  He also touched upon a renewed focus on the potential for ire spreading through combustible façade materials, as well as fire safety in wooden tall buildings – a trend that is gaining momentum in Scandinavia and in the Western world.
