On Thursday, September 7, the Vancouver Chapter of CSC is hosting a discussion on the specification and coordination of fire-suppression systems.
Led by Keith Trulson, Eng.L. AScT, a fire protection associate with Integral Group, it delves into how recent changes to local building bylaw codes have required full fire suppression designs, which must be implemented at the building permit stage.
As Trulson will explore, it is important to provide all facets of fire suppression design—from specifications, schematics, design development and working drawings to hydraulic calculations, system sizing, fire pump requirements, and seismic load calculations. Projects incorporating full fire-suppression designs also ensure tendering of projects will lessen onsite construction extras, installation delays, or fines due to late permit application.
The event takes place at the Sandman Hotel (180 West Georgia Street), in a ballroom located through the back of the Moxie’s Classic Grill restaurant. It begins with a buffet at 11:30 a.m., with the speaker presentation expected to finish by 1:30 p.m. For more information, click here or contact Vince Smith.
