Problem Solving for Fire Resistance in Existing Construction
- Participants will be provided an evaluation approach to document estimated fire resistances for existing building elements for approval under the alternate materials and methods provisions of the IBC.
- Participants will gain a working knowledge of several technical resources available, including Section 722 of the IBC, to document expected fire resistance of building elements.
- Participants will be presented real world examples using alternate methods to determine the fire resistance requirements for key building elements including the structural frame, floors, roofs and exterior walls.
