Next Level Design
Experienced layout technicians will find this blended learning course useful to understand the tools they utilize in-depth and gain a deeper knowledge of layout standpipes, fire pumps, seismic protection, and the design requirements for general storage. In addition to mastering requirements in NFPA 13, NFPA 14, and NFPA 20, students will utilize computer modeling software to apply design requirements learned throughout the course, becoming familiar with the BIM process. This course begins with an orientation and two 3-hour webinars followed by five days of in-person instruction.
The course will begin with an orientation and two 3-hour webinars providing an overview of the toolsets available in the Hydratec for Revit® software to allow students to utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) for exercises.
This is followed by five days of in-person instruction. The course is designed for those with layout experience looking to understand the tools they utilize in-depth and gain a deeper knowledge to apply the design and installation requirements for general storage, install and calculate seismic protection, layout and calculate standpipe systems, size, and select-fire pumps, and apply hydraulic principles to complex wet, deluge, and preaction systems. Seismic protection and sway bracing will also be covered in detail.
