Sam Morley presented a seminar at the Architectural Association School of Architecture titled ‘Forensic Fire Safety’. The seminar was delivered to students on the RIBA Part 3 course, which allows successful candidates to register as architects.
The seminar was set up to help address recently expanded fire safety criteria from the Architects Registration Board, in response to the Grenfell tragedy. The seminar discussed cases where there were fire safety defects, including lack of compliance with Part B of the Building Regulations, that contributed to the spread of the fire.
