Sullivan Code Group to Present at IFMA Research and Development Council 2013 Spring Conference

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Kevin Hastings, P.E., LEED AP, Director of the Sullivan Code Group, will participate in the IFMA Research and Development Council 2013 Spring Conference on Monday, April 29th. Mr. Hastings presentation is titled “Building & Fire Code Requirements for Existing Research Buildings” and will focus on the common code issues encountered when designing a laboratory building. Available code compliance options for the storage and use of hazardous materials in the built environment are explored throughout the spectrum from small-quantity users in school laboratories to large-scale manufacturing facilities. The presentation will address exempt quantities, control areas, and high hazard use groups as well as the design implications for projects that incorporate hazardous materials. We will also review requirements for maximum laboratory unit size, means of egress, emergency showers and other topics.

The seminar will take place from 4:00PM – 5:00PM at the Boston Marriott in Cambridge, MA. Register Online at

R.W. Sullivan Engineering will also be exhibiting at the Spring Conference. We hope to see you there!
