This presentation will describe the requirements for special inspections that are now a part of the 2012 International Building Code. Although firestopping is nothing new, the inspection component is new for a number of building categories. This program will outline the types of buildings that will require inspections and the types of materials that can be used for firestopping. Attending this program will provide you with information that will help you properly prepare the project specifications, and enable you to clearly understand the level of work to be included in the owner’s project budget.
