Class Overview: This seminar addresses how to determine building occupancy classification and type of construction in the 2015 International Building Code (IBC). Based on the determined occupancy and construction of a building, its allowable heights and area can be calculated. A handy spreadsheet will be provided for the course attendees to perform a table lookup and tedious calculations.
