Qatar University Hall

The Qatar University Hall is a multi-purpose building incorporating auditoriums, viewing galleries, prayer rooms, administration offices and meeting rooms, located across three storeys.

Holmes Fire provided an assessment of the building against NFPA 5000 to determine the level of compliance with the prescriptive requirements for fire and life safety. Subsequently, Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling was undertaken to predict smoke movements between levels, with the view of removing the need for a smoke exhaust system. Performance-based fire engineering analysis of the building demonstrated compliance of the proposed design with the relevant Goals and Objectives of NFPA 5000.
