The course will provide you a better understanding of how smoke migrates in multi-story building fires and how building codes in the United States have evolved to address this danger. Throughout this course we will illustrate the physics of vertical smoke migration in mid- and high-rise building fires and the hazards this presents for building occupants. The instructor will discuss how building codes seek to protect building occupants from this hazard and review various methods that have been developed to meet these code
requirements to limit vertical smoke migration.

Firm’s spend hundreds of thousands of dollars each year submitting proposals in response to RFPs. Most often, unless the firm has a rigid process for after-the-fact business intelligence, they move on the next proposal. It’s a “hit or miss” game that becomes very expensive. Gaining insight is of utmost importance if you want to win more work. In this discussion we will discuss the No/No Go policies that make the most sense, uncover methods for getting a better debrief and take a look at ways to gain greater insight into what your competitors say and do with the proposals they submit.
