11 Jul Randy Day, PE of TERPconsulting’s Denver office receives Fire Resistive Joint and Penetrations (Firestop) Special Inspector certification
TERPconsulting is pleased to announce that Randy Day, PE has been officially certified as a Fire Resistive Joint and Penetrations (Firestop) Special Inspector for the city and county of Denver. “I have been involved with firestopping since my career began in 2014 – now I have the certifications to prove it,” Randy said of receiving the news he had successfully met the qualifications and was certified as a Firestop Special Inspector.
Randy completed the Denver Building Department’s certification requirements for a 3rd party special inspector of firestopping in May and submitted the necessary information to the Department of Community Planning & Development – City & County of Denver. Certification to become a Firestop Special Inspector involves verification in the areas of experience, training, and knowledge. This achievement allows Randy to begin conducting inspections in Denver immediately. Prior to this accomplishment, Randy was certified as an International Firestop Council (IFC) Third-Party Firestop Inspector.
“Modern building codes rely on both active and passive fire protection. A passive element like firestopping is easy to overlook and often misunderstood by installers,” explains Randy of his interest in pursuing expertise in the specialty.
In his capacity as fire protection engineer, licensed in Colorado and Washington, at TERPconsulting, Randy is responsible for lead technical tasks and quality control, plan review, developing alternative means and methods, and project proposals.
Randy is a member of the Rocky Mountain and national chapters of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (SFPE) and sits on SFPE’s Continuing Professional Development Committee, PE Exam Review Subcommittee. Randy serves as an alternate member of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 200 — Standard for Hanging and Bracing of Fire Suppression Systems and is a member of the Rocky Mountain Automatic Fire Alarm Association. Randy has both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in fire protection engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park.
