Building codes need to be updated periodically and fire codes are no different says AESG’s Saeed Al Abbar

Saeed Al Abbar, director of UAE-based specialist consultancy AESG said UAE’s upcoming Fire and Life Safety Code 2017 will be well received, according to ConstructionWeekOnline.

Responding to a query about the evolution of the code since its first iteration in 2011, Al Abbar said: “With any building codes, you have to update them at periodic intervals, and with fire codes it’s no different.

“The [previous iteration was launched] six years ago, so it’s time for an update.”
