Partial occupancy plans


The National Construction Code of Australia via performance based design as well as the Ontario Building Code permits staged building occupancy in large buildings provided sufficient fire safety measures are implemented.

Vortex Fire has developed partial occupancy plans to assist building owners, contractors, and project teams with the identification of key building features and systems that need to be operational to permit partial occupancy.

  • National Construction Code of Australia
  • Ontario Building Code requirements for occupancy of an unfinished building
  • Occupancy stages
  • Fire alarm requirements,
  • Sprinkler system requirements,
  • Fire separations;
  • Health requirements;
  • Crane swings,
  • Fire service access, and
  • General advice to achieve occupancy.
