Abstract: This dissertation summarized the approach and actions implemented by a 21st century shopping mall to manage the needs of fire safety as well as keeping its compliance to rules set by SCDF. It briefly reviews the FSM’s role as well as SCDF’s effort to create awareness giving us an opportunity to look to the building performance-based fire protection features. This dissertation also generalizes the various options of fire evacuation in different anticipated scenarios. At the same time, it summarizes the generic problems faced by the building management. The scientific manner of different form of fire, various types of fire-fighting equipment deployed has been reflected in this dissertation. Integrating fire hazard and evacuation plan, it has strengthens the shopping mall’s fire safety evaluation system, whose subclass includes its building safety, fire fighting force, communicating system with SCDF and etc. The case study of 313 @ Somerset deploys the use of the Pathfinder (2011) for simulation of various means of escape as well as findings that demonstrate phrase evacuation as the most efficient way to escape during a fire outbreak since the time taken is shorter. Interviews with both the FSM and SCDF fire fighters had highlighted the fundamental manner of fire safety management is to deploy the right safety protection features and equipment for the building. Nevertheless, throughout the process of this dissertation, it is vital to note that fire safety should be done in prevention control to ensure life safety and optimum protection among the occupants within the premises.
