McKeon Door Company
Steve’s primary focus for the past 18 years has been working with the architectural and code community in understanding how open design and complete code compliance are compatible and not mutually exclusive. Steve has worked directly with architects, code officials and general contractors in a number of states. Steve has presented programs at various State AIA conventions and the CSI Construct. Steve is a member of CSI and the former Secretary on the Executive Board of the Central Iowa Chapter of CSI, a member of the Iowa Association of Building Officials, the International Door Association and the International Code Council.
In this presentation we will cover aspects of Chapters 7 & 10 of the International Building Code 2015, along with the Atrium provisions of Chapter 4. Particularly we will show how design teams can keep their design open and at the same time meet the fire and life safety provisions of the IBC 2015 • We will cover the 5 walls found in the IBC, their applications and the opening protective requirements of each of those applications • We will use case studies to cover specific code topics such as Elevator Lobbies, Horizontal Exits, Exit Passageways, Corridor Separation and Smoke Compartments in Healthcare, to name a few.
