Description of Project

Dublin City University’s original campus is their grounds in Glasnevin. They have recently expanded to DCU Alpha, All Hallows and St. Patrick’s College. Factfire have provided fire safety consultancy services to DCU since 2009.

Over the last four years, DCU has expanded to incorporate three new campuses:

  • DCU Alpha
  • St. Patricks College
  • All Hallow College

We were engaged from the beginning to carry out fire safety assessments, fire safety certificate etc. on each new acquisition

Services

The services provided at DCU include:

  • Review of proposed designs.
  • Fire Safety Risk Assessments .
  • Fire Safety and Disability Access Certificate Applications.
  • Onsite Supervision [Periodic Inspections] of works.
  • Ancillary Certification.
  • Way Finding Maps.
  • Fire Safety Policy and Procedures.
  • Pre Fire Planning

Description of Comparable Scale

Dublin Port is almost unique in Dublin city in having such a large land holding. However, the combined areas of the four DCU campuses is now approximately 100 acres. This puts DCU as one of the larger live sites in the environs of Dublin City.

The site includes a range of building type, age and size, and has  a programme of continual redevelopment and new construction ongoing at all times.

Furthermore, the four number DCU campus has a population of circa 20,000 students, staff, employees and visitors. While we recognise that Dublin Port receives a significant number of visitors annually, the number of staff operating within the port at any one time would be less than 20,000.

N/A

Services

The services provided at DCU include:

  • Fire Safety Certificate Applications.
  • Onsite Supervision of works relating to fire safety.
  • Fire Safety Assessment of existing building stock.
  • Preparation of Fire safety details for unique issues discovered due to the age profile of some of their existing building stock.
  • Preparation of compliant First Aid Fire Fighting layouts.
  • Preparation of Way Finding Maps.
  • Preparation of Fire Safety Management Documentation.
  • Preparation of Pre Fire Planning for the entire campus.

The above list will cover the fire safety aspect on any project currently underway in Dublin City at present. We would anticipate that all of above could be required for Dublin Port.

Description of Comparable Complexity

The DCU Alpha project involved providing a range of fire services, including on site, during construction phases, post-construction and ongoing services such as a way finding map and pre fire planning of a large complex campus.

The DCU projects involved providing high level fire safety assessments on a live site with changing conditions. , with academic activities, research areas, laboratories, scientific research areas, industrial building, sports centres, medical centres, residential unit and full theatre in continual use during professional fire safety assessment taking place.

This live site aspect would be similar to the requirements at Dublin Port.
