This class is designed to help you evaluate a firestop submittal more quickly, completely, and confidently; then take that information into the field during a site walk and identify any additional missing firestop details or even a few common firestop errors. We will review a submittal in the office, then we will take the paperwork into the field to find missing details and learn some common mistakes that create liability. You will leave the session with actionable steps and what some may think is a magic trick to help you spot bad firestop installers, bad special inspectors and problems with firestop installations.
