IRC Fire Sprinklers

IRC FIRE SPRINKLERS, Lessons from Implementation.

Description: Hear the story of one jurisdiction’s long journey of implementing mandatory, single family dwelling fire sprinklers soon after the provisions were added to the IRC.  This is not a comprehensive class about sprinkler codes.  Rather, it casually shares the surprises, the bumps in the road, and the domino effect that you don’t learn reading the code.  Learn many lessons of implementation from an instructor who lived through the process and learned by mistake and oversight.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, attendees will…

  • be more prepared to implement residential fire sprinkler system requirements in their jurisdiction.
  • understand issues that don’t reveal themselves on the sprinkler plans.
  • realize the team effort required by the building plan reviewer, inspector, fire department, water department, contractor, and tradespeople.

Length: 90 minutes.

Energy Conservation

ENERGY CONSERVATION CONSTRUCTION

Description: Energy conservation isn’t all about insulation and the energy code.  There are many ways that framing, plumbing, electrical, and other installations can enhance the energy performance of a home.  Dimes add up to dollars and dollars add up to dinner, just the same, small gains in energy conservation can add up to lots of saved energy.  Learn how to keep energy in mind throughout the whole construction process, long before the insulation crew arrives.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, attendees will…

  • Understand code provisions that reduce thermal bridges and increase insulation in the exterior envelope, such as single-ply and box headers, as well as single top plate construction and 24-inch-on-center wall spacing.
  • Think outside the box about how various trades can enhance energy performance.
  • Learn the complexities of providing certain air barriers and why they are essential to thermal performance.

Length: 6 hours. Thanks to ICC Region VI and New England Building Officials Education Association sponsorship, an additional 30 minute Q/A session will be provided after the webinar.

Minimum Code for Budget Decks

MINIMUM CODE FOR BUDGET DECKS

Description: The International Residential Code is the “minimum” standard of construction.  A better understanding of this minimum allows for “above code” practices to be more well recognized, but it also allows for consumers on the lower end of budget to still safely enjoy their homes.  Learn some tips and tricks straight from the code that can keep basic deck construction affordable.  Do you really need all that metal hardware and double-ply beams?  Do you have to fill the entire hole with concrete?  Building to the minimum allows more people the chance for a backyard deck and summer barbecues, and there is nothing shameful about that.

Objectives: Upon completion of this course, attendees will…

  • Learn what metal hardware is optional.
  • Recognize the value of affordable construction and how it equates with safety.
