2019 PDC Summit


The Suite Advantage


Mar 20, 2019 8:30am ‐ Mar 20, 2019 9:30am


Credits: None available.

Description

Recent editions of NFPA 101: The Life Safety Code® and the International Building Code® have expanded opportunities to use suites in both new and existing construction. However, many facilities and designers still do not use suites to their full advantage. In this session, the changes and updates to suite requirements will be outlined and potential risks discussed. Newly constructed facilities that have not employed suites will be examined to determine how the design could have been modified to include suites.

Learning Objectives:

1.) List the advantages of suites for a health care facility.

2.) Identify the differences in suite requirements between NFPA and ICC codes.

3.) Assess potential facility layouts to determine if creating suites is feasible.

4.) Describe the challenges creating a suite can pose on a facility.

Speaker(s):

  • Allison C. Ellis, PE, Health Care Specialist, Registered Fire Protection Engineer, Koffel Associates, Inc.
  • William E. Koffel, PE, FSFPE, President, Koffel Associates, Inc.
