Two engineers from Arup have authored a book that is described as “the architect's primary source for information on designing for egress, evacuation, and life safety; egress design solutions; emergency evacuation; and crowd management planning.
Jeffrey S. Tubbs, PE, is an associate principal with Arup and is staff group leader of the firm’s Westborough, Mass., office. Tubbs is a registered fire protection engineer in seven states, and has experience developing prescriptive and performance-based code fire protection, life safety, and egress strategies for projects in the United States and internationally.
Brian J. Meacham, PhD, PE, is a principal with Arup, leading the firm's Global Risk Consulting Business. A fellow of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers, Meacham is regarded as an expert in risk-informed performance-based approaches to building regulation and fire protection design.
Their book examines egress solutions in terms of both prescriptive and performance-based code issues. A portion of the book focuses on techniques for providing egress design solutions and for coordinating egress systems with other critical life safety systems. Another part reviews historic and recent tragic life-loss fire events.
