Congratulations to Prof Ed Galea, Dr Hui Xie, Dr Steve Deere, Dr Lynn Hulse and Mr David Cooney of the Fire Safety Engineering Group, University of Greenwich for the achievement of the prestigious award from the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (UK Chapter).
The winning project, on Construction site evacuation safety: Evacuation strategies for tall construction sites, was a result of team effort and ‘it was also a great example of what can be achieved when academics partner with industry’, according to Professor Ed Galea.
“Outstanding, unique and informative research in an area seldom explored. There is great potential to make the construction environment and all those who work in it safer from fire and this research provides data and tools to achieve this objective.” SFPE
