Thomas Johnson, Partner
Tom Johnson’s (JDP's) expert regulatory assistance to overcome objections from the departments of health, buildings, fire and CMS, or DADs, or OSHPD if you are in California. Unfortunately, bureaucracy has not caught up to technology and many authorities having jurisdiction (AHJ's) are adverse to new things as regulations are based on past. There is precedent of getting denials because inspectors are not trained to think outside of the box, so are unable to synthesize new technologies or alternate methods and means with current code, even if they are technically compliant with the rules. This includes food code, mechanical code, fire code and nursing codes related to care, or perhaps HHS CMS requirements (NFPA 101, etc). Tom has unequaled knowledge in the field of ventless kitchen regulation and code. He cut his teeth on training AHJ's in classrooms, in debates and in boards of appeal and review in almost every state jurisdiction in the U.S. In order ensure approval at an appeals board, he initiates direct communication with the projects HVAC engineers, contractors and/or architect. By discussing with them our purpose built facility and its matching mechanical system requirements with appropriate documentation in construction submittal documents, Tom dramatically improve likely hood of getting an approval on the first pass.
