Trade Ups in the IBC
Jeffery M Hugo, CBO
The 1973 America Burning report encouraged the U.S. building codes to allow more increased active fire protection systems to reduce passive fire protection systems. This becomes the birth of the tradeoff, or when lives and properties are saved, it is better referred to as the “trade up”. Since then, the NFSA and many allies have been involved in the model code arena to promote the attributes of fire sprinkler systems. This program will highlight some of the long serving trade ups in the model codes, the financial benefits of trade ups for building designers and building owners, and tools to convince customers and communities that fire sprinkler systems and trade ups save lives, property and money which benefit everyone that uses current codes.

The Impact of NFPA 3 and NFPA 4 on Sprinkler Systems
Mark Hopkins, PE
As part of the 2018 NFPA code cycle, two documents are changing in ways that will impact the way you do business. First, NFPA 3, Recommended Practice for Commissioning of Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems will become a standard. Both NFPA 3 and NFPA 4, Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety System Testing are being incorporated through reference into the International Building Code, NPFA 101, Life Safety Code and NFPA 5000, the Building Construction and Safety Code. The important changes impacting how sprinkler systems are commissioned will be discussed as NFPA 3 becomes a standard. What will you need to do that you aren’t doing now? How will this impact cost and time? The important changes impacting integrated testing will be discussed as NFPA 4 becomes more widely used. Will every sprinkler system supervised by a fire alarm system require integrated testing plans and written procedures? These important topics will be discussed.
