Telgian Engineering & Consulting, LLC (TEC) fire protection expert April Musser will present an “Energy Code Impact on Commissioning and Integrated Testing” webinar on Monday, June 21, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET). Offered by the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE), the webinar is intended to provide an explanation of the driving factors behind commissioning and integrated testing requirements. Musser’s presentation will also define the roles and responsibilities of architects, designers, engineers, and jurisdictional enforcement personnel in the commissioning and integrated testing process.
“Changes in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), as well as American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standards and NFPA 1, Fire Code are all driving new requirements for commissioning and integrated testing,” says Musser. “During this webinar, participants will learn the definitions of acceptance testing, commissioning, and integrated testing. In addition, they will learn the proper path to compliance with the updated IECC, ASHRAE, and NFPA requirements.”
This presentation is designed to provide a road map to conformance via the requirements in NFPA 3, Standard for Commissioning of Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems and NFPA 4, Standard for Integrated Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems Testing.
Musser has more than 18 years of fire protection engineering experience including risk assessment and hazard analysis, design of specialized detection and suppression systems and use of performance-based design. She is a Professional Engineer, a Certified Fire Protection Specialist (CFPS) and holds a CVI certification from the US Department of Homeland Security. In addition, she serves on the NFPA 30 Technical Committee for Flammable and Combustible Liquids and is an active member of both NFPA and SFPE.
As well as sharing her expertise via presentations and webinars nationwide, Musser is also the author of numerous articles on fire protection engineering and fire safety. Recent examples include “The Constantly Changing Landscape of Risk in Campus Environments” and “Integrating Fire Safety and Security Solutions in the Campus Environment” both of which appeared in Campus Security & Life Safety magazine, as well as “Performance Based Egress and Evacuation” which was featured in Gulf Fire magazine.
