Firestopping Engineering Judgements
Firestopping Engineering Judgements, or “EJs” as they are commonly referred to as, show up on construction projects often when field conditions differ from the original intended design. These unanticipated construction hindrances encountered in the field often cannot be easily or cost-effectively redesigned, so firestop manufacturer recommendations are typically made to propose alternative designs to ensure performance of the firestop system is not compromised.

This course is intended to identify the critical elements needed for architect, specifiers, construction industry professionals, building officials, fire officials, firestop contractors and other stakeholders to obtain EJs when necessary, providing guidelines and resources for doing so.

Learning Objectives:
-Fully understand the unique challenges of EJs are critical in helping to avoid costly changes, delays, and compromised life safety requirements liability downstream.
-Fully understand the critical elements needed for obtaining an engineering judgement.
-Understand what firestopping is and what 3rd party tested systems are.
-Understand which code provisions allow for the use of Engineering Judgments and how various AHJs (authorities having jurisdiction) interpret them and handle approval of EJs.
-Identify guidelines and other key resources for obtaining and engineering judgement.

This course has been approved for 1 CEU (AIA 1 LU/HSW).
