AbstractWhen professional competence is always available at the design stage of a building, as is the case with structural adequacy, a building code is not necessary. Fire protection engineering has not yet developed to this extent so that a regulated and therefore restrictive approach must be accepted until it becomes possible to deal with fire safety adequately as an inherent feature of design.
