Each student will perform a research project relating to a code or inspection failure which led to
a change in either the codes surrounding the project or the inspection process. There is no
requirement that the topic be specifically related to fire or egress codes (my topic is station night club fire). Topics to explore can
include, but are not limited to, major fires, structural failures (both during and post construction),
and others as approved by the instructor.
