I have specialized in code consulting for 30+ years. My career has involved practicing as an architect, serving as a municipal building official, code analyst, and secretary to the board of building appeals, and for the past 31 years as a code consultant on a variety of complex projects. As an architect, a building official, and a code consultant, I’ve worked primarily with fire officials in negotiating barriers between construction zones and occupied areas in buildings. Whether the building is a museum, or some other occupancy, the issues are typically the same. Egress from occupied buildings must be maintained, construction dust and debris must be contained, and the overall level of safety of the building must not be sacrificed. It’s more of a common sense issue, or a standard of ordinary care concern, that is negotiated on a case by case basis rather than a set of written rules and regulations that are applicable to all buildings. My consulting business primarily deals with providing building and accessibility code consulting services for architects or building owners, and I normally have1-3 legal expert cases a year. My museum experience is rather substantial, in addition to performing art centers, arenas/stadiums/ballparks, hospitals, schools, office facilities, hotels/condos, warehouses, historic renovations/restorations, etc.
