The primary audience is AIA members/chapters. The seminar was developed to inform AIA members on how to include fire sprinklers without increasing cost to their projects, introducing fire sprinkler tradeup concepts in design, and getting AIA members more familiar and comfortable about sprinkler technology. Seminar Description:
Specifically created for design professionals, this intense full day program will demonstrate how to use design options under the current International Building Code and other model codes to provide increased fire protection in commercial, industrial and residential construction while controlling construction costs. The presenter will identify and explain the various types of sprinkler systems and where they are required. Several discussions will arise over the design options which will permit design flexibility in all building types and uses. The seminar will cover relevant sections of the IBC and fire sprinkler installation standards (such as NFPA 13, 13R and 13D) that all design professionals should know.
Participants will learn how to use the Fire Sprinkler Guide to quickly identify code requirements such as fire sprinkler modified height and area tables and the 125+ trade-ups that fire sprinklers provide.
