ABOUT THE SEMINAR | TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2018

Examining Building Enclosures with Combustible Materials
Presented by David J. Jacoby, P.E., and Matthew J. Normandeau, P.E., LEED AP

Following a series of exterior fires in high-rise buildings around the globe, the fire protection industry has taken a closer look at the role exterior wall construction played in these events and how fire protection strategies can adapt. In this seminar, we will review recent examples of these fires, the building science of exterior walls, and the interface of building science, aesthetics, and fire safety in high-rise buildings. We will also discuss current trends in exterior wall design, including the use of more combustible materials; the current IBC-based code requirements and testing protocols for multiple wall configurations; and potential code changes and new testing protocols under consideration in the industry.
