Case Study: overpressure stairwell system in a hotel

The aim of this Case Study is to facilitate the installation of a stairwell overpressure system in a hotel, with seven floors above ground level and a car park at basement level. To tackle this project we will use the CYPEFIRE Pressure Systems application. It is a software tool designed to create this type of installation, in accordance with European legislation EN 12101-6 on smoke and heat control systems.

Use Case: Electrical zones in bathrooms and toilets

In order to take advantage of the benefits of the Open BIM work methodology, the workflow is described below. Starting from the architectural model, the electrical zones are defined in locations that have a bath or a shower, with the aim of choosing and properly installing the wiring devices in order to guarantee the safety of the electrical installations.
