From our friends at BOMA International: “The International Code Council (ICC) recently held final round public hearings for the 2015 editions of five of its model codes in Portland, Oregon. BOMA International staff attended the hearings. Among key code decisions was the defeat of a BOMA–opposed proposal that would have required firefighter breathing air replenishment systems in all new high-rise buildings and in all existing high–rise buildings without sprinklers. As an alternative, fire service representatives and others agreed to work with BOMA and other interested parties to develop related provisions for a code appendix, which will allow local jurisdictions to elect whether or not to require these systems. BOMA also helped secure industry victories pertaining to storm shelters, elevators, sprinkler systems and more. Click here to read more about the approvals and defeats at the ICC Code Hearings.”
