by bkrigbaum@solagroup.com








As of Jan. 1, 2011, the 2009 International Residential Code requires builders to include fire
sprinklers in the construction

of all new one- and two-family homes and townhomes. To assist builders
with the growing demand of fire sprinkler installation, the National
Association of Home Builders

announced it will now provide credit for those who complete an online
fire sprinkler installation course.

The course was developed by the Home
Fire Sprinkler Coalition
, and
approved by the American Institute of Architects,
National Association of the
Remodeling Industry
, the National
Kitchen and Bath Association
,
and nine other organizations.

“This
course helps architects, developers and homebuilders understand the
basics while learning about the environmental benefits of installing
home fire sprinklers,” HFSC Board Chair Gary Keith says in
the release.

Visit HFSC’s
or AEC
Daily’s website

for more information or to take the course.
