Codes & Standards: Fire, Life Safety
Read the best articles from the past week. NEC 2017 changes, NFPA 20 fire pumps, office building design, successful acoustic projects and lighting occupancy sensors.
Office buildings are complex structures containing automated features, energy-saving designs, high-tech equipment and other components as advanced as you’d find in any other state-of-the-art project. Fire protection engineers play a key role
Read the best articles in January 2020 including: NEC changes, building automation advances, electrical design for smoke control systems, cooling coil condensate, lighting commissioning and more.
Read the best articles from the past week. Electrical design for smoke control systems, NFPA 20 fire pumps, NEC 2017 changes, NFPA 101 defining egress, and NFPA 110-2019 changes.
This session will discuss why NFPA 3 was initially developed and how it evolved into a standard, who is involved in commissioning these systems and some common misconceptions related to commissioning them.
Read the best articles from the past week. NEC 2017 changes, circuit interrupters, lab and research facility design, building automation advances, and egress planning with NFPA 101.
NFPA 101: Life Safety Code provides fire protection engineers many resources for designing safe egress, along with several other life safety options
Read the best articles from the past week. Electrical design for smoke control systems, NFPA 101 and egress, 2020 expectations for engineering firms, building automation advances, and NFPA 20.
While nobody expects a building to burn, it happens every day; so, what can we, as an industry, do to design these buildings to be safer – even when they burn?
