I'm a senior fire engineer and code consultant in Washington DC. Since graduating from the University of Maryland (BS and MS in Fire Protection Engineering) I have been a part of the building industry through the design of sprinkler and fire alarm systems and through helping architects and owners achieve building code compliance.
After answering some of the same building code questions from multiple architects (way too many times to count!), I decided to start writing down simple and clear summaries of these common code questions. A few months later, The Building Code Blog was born!
Whether you are an architect, engineer, or contractor, I hope this site is a valuable resource to you! If you have a code question of your own, you can submit it on the code questions page.
