The paper "Risk Modeling, Assessment, and Management" is a wonderful example of a case study on management. The report will focus on assessing the conventional center. The building is located north of Dukhan Highway as a part of the education city development at the Qatar Foundation Education City site in Doha, Qatar. The convention center building comprises of a kitchen, halls, office places, prayer rooms, lounges, car parks, utility spaces, support areas as well as Information technology facilities. Evidently, the building has a floor area of about 79,000m2 in four of the public occupied areas.

In addition, the building is a partially sprinkled premise in accordance with NFPA 101 and 5000. The building has a height of about 34.5 meters above the normal grade. The buildings occupied levels begin at an elevation that is approximately +8.00m and it stretches up to +25m. The level found above this at about +30.00, is used as an equipment and storage rooms. It is apparent that the building’ s highest story is at a height less than 23m above the least level of fire. In the convention center, department vehicles that visit do not fall in the definition of a high building.

The materials that have designed the walls, shafts, floors, exit passageways, as well as the roofs and structural members, are non-combustible materials. The aim of the assessment is so as to provide a comprehensive report on the qualitative and quantitative hazards and risk management methods, the right control measures that should be used to the general safety and community fire safety so as to execute an appropriate risk management plan.   In addition, the report will assess strategic decision analysis in a particular organizational context as well as evaluate strategies to enhance the concept of collaborative working in any organization to prevent and control the occurrence of risks as a result of fires.

Besides, it will also provide strategies that will enhance a collaborative working towards controlling fires. Fire risk AssessmentA risk assessment is an essential step in protecting the staff, the organization as well as abiding by the law (Kemshall and Pritchard, 1997).
