Maze Fire Consulting personnel developed the detailed holistic fire strategy for the Queen Alia Airport terminal in conjunction with extensive consultation with the local Jordanian Civil Defence. Detailed fire engineering analyses were carried out to help optimize the design by determining the evacuation modelling characteristics, including comparison of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) smoke modelling and zoned smoke model calculations. These analyses helped shape the smoke control strategy to be adopted within the terminal. The NFPA suite of international guidance documents was adopted on this project with reference to additional BRE and British Standards where appropriate.
