Smoke Control Special Inspections have been a major source of heartburn for projects throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Unfamiliarity with the requirements of smoke control systems, including special inspections, can mean costly change orders and significant delays for a building receiving its’ Certificate of Occupancy. Code Red Consultant’s Nathan Birmingham, P.E. will be speaking about smoke control special inspections on Tuesday, October 8th at the ASHRAE Boston Chapter meeting in Waltham, MA. The presentation will discuss the state building code requirements for special inspections of atrium exhaust, stair pressurization and elevator pressurization systems. Nate has significant experience with the design and testing of smoke control systems and as part of the presentation, the issues that are often identified during his special inspections will be discussed. We hope to see you there!
