Roof Hatch & Smoke Vent Design: Life Safety and BIM Integration

Roof Hatch & Smoke Vent Design: Life Safety and BIM Integration

This course will explain the benefits of roof hatch & smoke vent design, life safety and BIM integration. The designer will have a better understanding of code regulations for life safety and will be able to properly size and place vents in accordance with these codes. Through an illustration and demonstration on BIM modeling, the designer will be able to better integrate roof hatches and smoke vents into their next project. We will conclude this one hour course with a 10 minute Q&A period for review of the topics covered today.
