FV 3201 Engineering Design Project - International College of Engineering and Management
Learning outcome 1: Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving
Learning outcome 2: Exhibit creativity and innovation in technical design
Learning outcome 3: Critically review and analyse client and user requirements, technical briefs and apply significant knowledge to design scenarios, including relevant technological, engineering, legal, health and safety and development factors
Learning outcome 4: Exhibit appropriate project management and team working skills
You will be provided with a set of architectural plans, elevations, sections and some further information for a building that is to be built. Your design team has been employed to create a fire strategy for the building which meets the client's requirements and architectural vision.
In groups of 4 or 5 (groups to be specified) you are required to produce a fire strategy of approximately 4,000 to 6,000 words for the building addressing the functional requirements as per the latest edition of Life Safety Code NFPA 101. Any proposed solution must be viable and proven in your submission.
In conjunction with the fire strategy the client also requires a set of FLS Plan with compartmentation drawings.
Groups will be given a substantial amount of time in class to work on the project and therefore you must ensure that you attend every session. Each group is expected to maintain a project diary clearly recording progress on the project including records of all meetings (inside and outside of class) and also records of any requests for information. The project diary will be reviewed at regular intervals throughout the module and should be submitted in conjunction with the final fire strategy.
Please note that attendance at scheduled classes is compulsory and will be monitored. An individual's final mark may be reduced by 5% for each unauthorized absence up to a total reduction of 20%.
Contribution of group members
Remember this is a group task requiring an approximately equal contribution from all group members. It is therefore vital that everyone plays their part and each group should include within the project diary a breakdown of the distribution of work with a brief description of the work performed by each group member.
Example structure of fire strategy
The following is an example of a typical fire strategy layout:
• Project Description.
• Design Criteria
• Building Occupancy and Classification
• Fire Service Provisions
• Building Construction and Separation
• Means of Egress
• Fire Protection Systems
• Smoke Control System
• Building Management.
• Appendix 1 - Means of escape calculations
• Appendix 2 - Smoke control calculations
The word limit is 2,000 words per student (+/-10%). This excludes footnotes but includes quotations. The word count must be printed on the top right hand corner of your work.
