Flames have always been a danger in structures as well as a serious risk on the wellbeing of its inhabitants. That is why in every single new assembly, firefighting frameworks are turning into a prerequisite to guarantee a safe convenience and security of properties. There exists few codes that handle various perspectives of the outline inevitabilities for the safety of typical inhabitancies. Amongst the most well-known stands out the NFPA, "National Fire Protection Association". NFPA.101, "Life Safety Code 2000", was made for the categorization and assertion of varied building structures. This part of the code characterizes the various systems and frameworks to guarantee and create a safer mean of evacuation from inhabitancies to maintain the wellbeing of the occupants. The task at hand handles the establishing of a firefighting framework in a building that is still under construction. The buildings firefighting framework strategy is composed of understanding a small number of areas of the NFPA code. In this case the structure is "The Faculty of Business Administration" in the "University of Balamand" building. The framework in view is of a wet sprinkler system, with a clean agent gas in electrical room and CO2 in boiler room, and a convenient arrangement of fire extinguishers in spaces of slightly controlled flames.
