SMA Presentation at Wachusett Area Building Officials Association

  • 12:30 PM
  • Leominster City Hall, Leominster, MA

The Stairway Manufacturers’ Association (SMA) will provide a luncheon presentation titled:  “Interpretation of Massachusetts Stair Building Codes”.  The 90 min presentation by Dave Cooper, SMA code development representative, will highlight the modifications made by the state and other differences of note in the transition to the 2003 International Residential Code. Attendees will be presented with a copy of the 2003 Visual Interpretation of the IRC Stairbuilding Code and have the opportunity to learn and discuss relevant applications of the code being used today.


The SMA offers several educational and reference materials that can be used to prepare for this workshop. The Stair Codes Visual Interpretations booklet, for example, is designed to simplify stair code guidelines with clear graphics that illustrate technical concepts. Industry professionals can also benefit from the SMA Stair Building and Handrailing technical guides, which are often required for vocational study as they offer vital instruction on how to create safe, comfortable, and elegant stairs. These resources can ensure that you are up to date with the latest industry standards, codes, and regulations—preparing you not only for this workshop, but also allowing you to build your expertise as an industry professional.
