University of California Merced Downtown Center
Coffman served as the smoke control special inspector for the new three story University of California Merced Downtown Center building. The new administration building has a three story atrium that connects the entirety of the building and uses natural ventilation as the primary method of smoke control. As the smoke control special inspector retained by the UC, Coffman reviewed the approved project shop drawings and smoke control rational analysis, developed the smoke control special inspection testing report, conducted inspections and testing of the smoke control system (components and performance), and assisted the UC fire marshal as the technical expert as needed.
