At Code Red Consultants, we believe in building lasting relationships with not only our clients, but with code officials as well. Having a good working relationship with building and fire officials can help to keep an open, honest dialogue throughout a project and maximizes the likelihood that any code issues will be flushed out during the building design. When the code doesn’t speak to a particular issue or project complexity, having mutual respect with a code official can be invaluable when it comes to developing compliance alternatives, equivalencies, and other alternate methods of design and construction.
Based on our reputation with the code official community, we were requested to provide training to the Building Officials of Western Massachusetts on October 16, 2013 at the West Springfield Town Hall. We will be providing training on Commercial Building Plan Review & Inspections reviewing some common misconceptions and overlooked code requirements in the industry. Although the organization consists largely of building officials, people involved in the design and construction industry are encouraged to join as associate members. Contact us if you would like more information about being involved in a great building official organization to stay on top of the latest code changes, industry news, and training events.
