FCIA Firestop & Effective Compartmentation 'DIIM' Symposium Canada - Edmonton 2016

The Delta Edmonton Centre Suites, Edmonton, AB

September 20-22, 2016

The FCIA Canadian 'DIIM' Symposium provides education and practical knowledge as related to the Firestop and Effective Compartmentation industry in Canada.

Firestop and Effective Compartmentation systems that are properly installed to the tested and listed system specs save lives, but that’s not the only critical step in the process.

Total protection begins with good Design, continues with proper Installation, is verified with thorough Inspection and is completed with regular Maintenance and Management of installed systems. Known as the ‘DIIM’ of Firestopping and Effective Compartmentation, when followed accurately, these steps combine to provide greater reliability of installed Firestop Systems for improved Fire- and Life-Safety in buildings around the globe.

At the FCIA Firestop & Effective Compartmentation ‘DIIM’ Symposium Canada, delegates will attend a varied array of educational sessions focusing on each piece of the ‘DIIM’ puzzle - Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance/Management - as well as sessions focused on code and standards updates, the contractor accreditation programs, business development and more.

If you Install, Design, Specify, Inspect, Maintain or Manage buildings with installed Firestop and Effective Compartmentation systems, this event provides the expert education required to stay current with the developing industry trends and best practices.
