The proper maintenance of fire-resistance-rated and smoke-resistant assemblies starts with the specification for new construction. It has to be built right to be maintained right. Specification requirements and documentation retention can help with "building it right" the first time. But, the problem of how to maintain the fire-resistance-rating after construction continues to be an ongoing challenge in existing buildings.
This month's session, 'If You Build It (Right), They Will Maintain It (Right)', focuses on the FCIA's proper Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance ('DIIM') - in reverse order. By starting with Maintenance and Management of the barrier and firestopping, a clear path is drawn for Specifiers, Contractors, Inspection Agencies and the Building Owner and Manager.
Attend this session to learn how new construction planning can help manage barriers for the building's complete life-cycle. After the program, bring your questions for the expert led Q&A session.
