Smart VENT’s mission is to provide technical information and support for your Foundation Flood Venting code compliant design and installation requirements. The Smart VENT is the first engineered foundation flood mitigation opening to be ICC CERTIFIED compliant with FEMA/ NFIP and model building codes (ICC, BOCA, SBCCI and ICBO). One 8”x16” Foundation Flood Vent is certified to cover 200 square feet of enclosed area. The Smart VENT proudly announces that it received a 2003 MVP Award from Building Products Magazine. The Smart VENT is a FEMA Region ll Partner in Mitigation.

Smart VENT Inc. has announced that Mr. Leonard Cook of Engineered Flood Solutions is the factory technical representative for Eastern Massachusetts. Mr. Cook was raised in Wakefield, Massachusetts and graduated from Springfield College with a B.S. in American Studies & Business Management. Mr. Cook is the President of Engineered Flood Solutions of Dover, MA. “Lenny” will assist Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Surveyors and homeowners in the proper design and installation of our Foundation Flood Vents. In addition to Lenny’s long experience representing electrical, mechanical and architectural products, he has just finished the Smart VENT factory technical training program in Glassboro. NJ. Thus, Lenny can answer your questions on FEMA/ NFIP regulations plus the new ICC (formerly NES) and BOCA code compliance as well as insurance and professional liability concerns.

Since many code officials in Massachusetts are enforcing the FEMA/ NFIP regulations and the state BOCA Building Codes, Lenny is ready to explain the differences as they relate to foundation flood vents. As Flood Insurance premiums rise and FEMA/NFIP pushes to enforce the codes, the Smart VENT is the solution that is certified to meet all of the FEMA and BOCA Building Codes.

Lenny is also certified to present our training seminar that explains foundation flood vent codes and the rules that govern them. His AIA presentation is a free service, offering architects and professionals a one-hour Health Safety and Welfare Continuing Education Service (CES) credit. Call Lenny directly to schedule a group or individual session in your area.
