August 20/Fire Sprinklers in the IBC

Fire sprinklers are on the mind of every construction designer and decision maker. Fire Sprinklers in the IBC is a seminar that introduces the participant to fire sprinkler requirements in the International Building Code and International Fire Code for new construction. The fire sprinkler concept and designs occur in the building code over 125 times in over 17 chapters. This seminar will discuss where fire sprinklers are located throughout the IBC and what is required for all types of construction and occupancies. Participants will get more comfortable navigating the IBC and become familiar with IBC terminology. This seminar is designed for those who have experience in codes and standards but is also an excellent introduction to the IBC and fire sprinklers for those new in architecture, fire sprinkler design/contracting and code enforcement.
