Mixed Occupancies, Exterior Walls, and 2012 IEBC Fundamentals
Great instructor covering great topics, which are of interest to Architects, engineers, building officials, building inspectors, plans examiners, fire marshals, fire inspectors, and building designers.
What Will Be Covered: Mixed Occupancies (3 hour) – Based on the provisions of IBC Section 508, this seminar addresses those special requirements applicable to buildings containing two or more occupancy classifications. Exterior Walls (3 hour) – This seminar addresses the various provisions in the IBC dealing with exterior wall design and construction. Although such walls are primarily regulated due to their location on the lot, many other additional requirements are set forth in the code. Exterior bearing walls are regulated by Table 601, while the use of exterior exit stairways, exit courts and exterior areas of assisted rescue will also typically mandate some degree of fire-resistance. 2012 IEBC Fundamentals (International Existing Building Codes) will provide a basis for the correct use and application of the code. It will build an understanding of the intent of the code through detailing basic tables, categorizations and a case study.
