The purpose of this project was to investigate how adhering to NFPA 101 Life Safety Code impacts building professionals and the percent increase it has on the cost of construction. We accomplished this by analyzing construction budgets and interviewing industry professionals to obtain a holistic view of NFPA 101 knowledge. The project determined that NFPA code compliance increases cost by 3%-6%. This project also resulted in recommendations for improving NFPA knowledge, clarifying NFPA regulation and improving inspection processes.
