What is a Technical Note?

A technical note serves as a versatile tool, encompassing various applications. It might be crafted to address a particular facet of a structure, like detailing the fire-stopping at an edge of a slab, or to provide rationale for specific decisions, whether taken or abstained from. However, its scope is not limited – extending its reach to encompass an entire building or even an entire development.

While its scope is extensive, it remains subject to the rigorous scrutiny and peer review processes applied to all our documents. These technical notes vary in length; some span a few paragraphs, while others can stretch across tens of pages. Generally, their purpose is to either rectify or provide justification for specific design choices, addressing historical discrepancies with current regulations. Positioned beneath a fire strategy, these notes play a crucial role in ensuring alignment and compliance.
