Roy Weghorst, Head of Regulatory Affairs – Fire at Kingspan explained why the company was getting involved: “Safety innovation, and increasing standards are two essential elements of the buildings of the future. That’s why we’re delighted to take the lead and support this programme.
“Developing dynamic research methods, and new tests into the real-life fire performance of buildings is essential. We believe that the professional discipline of fire safety engineering can lead this work, and will play an increasingly important role in building into the future. We want to make sure the best people have the best training to help make that happen,” added Weghorst.
