Smoke Control Measures for High Rise Buildings and Maintenance Requirements

What thermal bridging mitigation strategies are you using to improve thermal performance?Learn a comprehensive approach to assessing thermal performance that will allow designers to better understand thermal bridging concepts.

Event Information

In this webinar, we attempt to demystify smoke control by reviewing some of the most common smoke control features in commercial and residential high rise buildings. Learn from case studies to identify some of the most common issues found in existing buildings and explore options for smoke control system evaluation. The webinar will conclude in presenting a new testing sequence for existing smoke control systems that can be re-established and approved.
