Fire engineering brief process
The purpose of the Fire Engineering Brief (FEB) process is to identify and discuss fire safety design solutions with stakeholders at an early stage. For projects where fire safety design solutions differ from the Acceptable Solutions, an FEB meeting may be required.
Designs using verification method C/VM2 or specific design, carry a risk of delay or refusal of the building consent application if the design is not supported by appropriate documentation including the FEB.
Designs using the acceptable solutions are not subject to the FEB process and can be lodged in the normal manner. We recommend that all applicable information is provided to ensure the application can be fully assessed.
- The decision to discuss the FEB formally is solely at the council's discretion; all applications must be submitted for a review and decision.
- A peer reviewer cannot undertake this process on the council's behalf.
- If you have difficulty attaching large files to the online form, please contact the FEB team.
- FEB meetings are held only at the Central Service Centre, 35 Graham Street, Auckland CBD.
