These requirements affect buildings classified as Risk Category III (buildings that represent a substantial hazard to human life in the event of failure) and Risk Category IV (buildings designated essential facilities). To facilitate gathering this input BDS is hosting a workshop on December 9, 2015 at 1900 SW 4th Avenue, room 2500A from 8:00 am to noon. Industry stakeholders have been notified of the meeting and invited to attend. For questions contact Fred Deis, 503-823-7543 or email@example.com.
