Most of the general public and even many of us in the A/E world, subscribe to a huge misconception about the intent of our building codes. Because of this, the performance of a “code-compliant” building often falls drastically short of the expectations of society and businesses that trust us to deliver. The good news is that this conundrum is rather easily overcome. In this webinar, we will discuss how forethought and relatively small investments into your building at the beginning of the design stage (or ownership stage) can add significant value to the property, reduce future repair costs, allow rapid re-occupancy that limits operations downtime, and save lives.
This webinar is presented by Josh Reynolds, S.E. Senior Associate with Miyamoto International, Inc. and Richard Chen, Principal at Miyamoto International, Inc.
