NFPA 909 REQUIREMENTS FOR CULTURAL PROPERTIES
TERPconsulting is pleased to announce that MARK HOPKINS, PE will present NFPA 909 REQUIREMENTS FOR CULTURAL PROPERTIES at the AFAA (Automatic Fire Alarm Association) Annual Business Meeting (virtual online) on Tuesday, May 5 at 2:00 PM EST.
Seeing fires at the Notre Dame, Shuri Castle, Brazil’s National Museum and other historical/culturally significant properties is devastating, to say the least. NFPA 909 provides protection requirements for museums, libraries, and other cultural properties in a holistic manner. The document requires fire prevention, active fire protection systems, passive fire protection features, and considerations for resiliency and salvage planning. When applied, it imposes additional requirements for fire alarm, detection, security, and fire suppression systems beyond what is minimally required by building and fire codes which will impact cost and schedule. Contractors and designers of these systems need to function as part of the team assembled by the facility operators. Understanding the roles and responsibilities are necessary to manage expectations. Communicating effectively will ensure successful projects in these facilities. This program will discuss issues affecting contractors and engineers working in these types of facilities.
