HAZARDOUS MATERIALS: LAB DESIGN & MAKING SENSE OF OVERLAPPING CODES
The storage and use of hazardous materials in labs is highly regulated by building codes, fire prevention codes and NFPA standards, as well as by insurance underwriters. We’ll dig deep in to the hazmat codes for labs, explaining IBC and NFPA, and how to apply the codes that overlap.
IMPROVING IAQ TO REDUCE COVID-19 EXPOSURE
While we can’t completely eliminate COVID-19 from buildings, there are a number of practical steps that can be taken to reduce the potential exposure to harmful viruses to building occupants.
INTRODUCTION TO AV DESIGN: THE IMPACTS & CHALLENGES
In modern workplaces, the use of video conferencing, interactive engagement displays, and technology integration helps foster collaboration and innovation. This presentation familiarizes the listener with AV systems and delves into the many factors that impact design and construction.
INTRODUCTION TO HVAC
