KU Leuven - evacuation survey

The challenge

Universities are leading, innovative organisations in many areas. With a complex network of locations, a high occupancy rate and demanding user group, they are a considerable challenge when it comes to managing their building portfolio. So when it comes to fire safety, it's also difficult to estimate the actual risk and to determine where investments would be the most efficient.

Approach

FESG was nevertheless able to offer the client a customised solution. The building was an existing building with a large number of lecture theatres and classrooms on the first floor, where without structural intervention, the legislation could not be satisfied. Using a targeted approach, we were able to use evacuation modelling to develop alternative solutions.
