Understanding regulatory codes is essential for the proper design of any health care facility and recent editions of the codes have introduced new requirements that offer additional design options. This webinar will reinforce your knowledge of long-standing requirements and provide insights into the newer provisions.
Audience members will hear answers to common questions about codes (NFPA 101®, International Building Code, and others) and will be able to test their knowledge and assumptions of these codes as well as the new editions. While most questions will be from the IBC and NFPA 101, discussion of other Codes (i.e. NFPA 72, NFPA 80, and the CMS requirements) will also be included.
The webinar will highlight background justification of changes to specific requirements and examples of how requirements have been applied in the health care industry in both new and existing construction.
