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 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.
NFPA 101: Life Safety Code provides fire protection engineers many resources for designing safe egress, along with several other life safety options
In this issue, learn about NFPA 101 and how it defines egress, HVAC energy-saving strategies and storage systems and why office buildings are special.
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?
NFPA 101: Life Safety Code is one of the primary sources for the requirements of exit pathways
Learn tips on how to design labs and research facilities — some of the most high-tech buildings around
Engineers designing electrical infrastructure to support smoke control systems must be aware of the stringent requirements listed throughout multiple code sections
