Remember the good old days when your commerical buildings were block and mortar or steel buildings with large dimensional lumber? Those days are long gone and it has made our job that much more dangerous.
When this building is completed, it will likely have a facade giving it the look of a brick, block or non-combustible building, but obviously, it is completely wood frame. If you don’t get involved with new construction and pay attention, you could miss what is happening here. Your companies could pull up on a commercial fire and be under the wrong impression about the makeup of this building and make a tragic mistake.
These buildings fail faster and are more and more common. Stop and look at what is being built and how it is being built, it just may save your life.
