Architects and designers are invited to join a free webinar September 16, 2015 entitled: "Getting to Yes: Code Alternate Materials and Means and Permit Streamlining"
This session will cover principles and strategy for effective navigation of the building permit process when materials or designs donÕt comfortably fit with conventional code application, as well as the use of permit streamlining for more effective and efficient processing. Alternate Materials and Means Requests (AMMR) can be used for various reasons including: use of innovative products and systems, new design concepts, complex geometries, code conundrums, political problem solving and the resolution of interpretation differences. Successful project examples will be used to demonstrate how to approach the AMMR process and demystify the concept of an alternate design. In addition, the landscape of permit streamlining concepts will be outlined, with a focus on streamlining approaches that can engage design professionals on the ÔpublicÕ side of the counter in a project's ultimate success.
