TOUR the Carboline Lab and Fire and Research Center, and learn about selection of fire-resistive materials for complex steel structures. Early collaboration during design, optimization, and execution can help you produce project-specific deliverables that meet functional code objectives.

This program is presented and sponsored by St. Louis-based Carboline, a world leader in coatings, linings, and fireproofing solutions.

Our speaker is Chris Burst, the Global Product Line Manager for Carboline.  With a decade of experience in the coatings industry, he has dedicated his career to working in technical service, new product development, and providing expert assistance to engineers and applicators in selecting Carboline products.  Chris holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology.

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: Attendees must wear hardhats and safety glasses in certain areas of the test lab. We'll have some extras if you don't own safety equipment, but we'd appreciate you bringing your own if you have them. 

The seminar portion of this program earns 1.0 AIA LU/HSW from Carboline, and the tour portion earns an additional 1.0 AIA LU/HSW from the chapter, for a total of 2.0 AIA LU/HSW. Sign up early, as space is limited.

Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the advantages and constraints of different fire-resistive material types for both in-situ and off-site application project scenarios.
    • Gain insights into planning and design considerations in selecting fire-resistive materials for complex steel structures and projects utilising lean construction or integrated project delivery approaches.
    • Be equipped with the knowledge to make informed decisions regarding selecting and applying fire-resistive materials to meet project-specific fire safety goals and requirements in the automotive, technology, and built environment segments.
    • Comprehensively understand the relationship between planning, design, optimisation, and execution in fire-resistive material selection for various project types.

This is an IN PERSON event, only. Because of the constraints inherent in touring a working fire test lab, we are unable to offer virtual attendance by Zoom.
