If your building design incorporates an “Alternative Solution”, the building’s Fire Engineering Report may require a Management In Use (MIU) Plan to ensure full compliance. First 5 Minutes works with building owners, managers and occupiers to provide individually tailored MIU Plans, detailing the procedures required to maintain the integrity of fire and emergency safety systems.
Many buildings now feature ‘Alternative Solutions’, allowing some level of creativity in how compliance (or a compliant building solution) can be achieved. This may require introducing new materials, technologies or methodologies, which may also realise better efficiencies, outcomes and cost savings, whilst still meeting the relevant performance requirement of the Building Code of Australia (BCA).
The MIU Plan forms part of the alternative solution and must include the building management policies to fire safety, including:
The MIU Plan provides guidance to building owners, managers and occupiers of buildings to maintain the safety features as required by statutory requirements and regulatory authorities. Because it is a compliance document, the MIU Plan must remain as part of the management records of buildings.
When the requirement is identified in the Fire Engineering Report, our specialists can assist building owners, managers and occupiers in developing their MIU Plan to detail the procedures required to maintain the integrity of their fire safety systems. With expertise across an array of sectors, our specialists will deliver 100% site-specific plans to help you ensure compliance with building fire and safety regulations and standards.CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION
