    2018 International Building Code

    This code applies to all buildings except detached one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses up to three stories. The 2018 IBC contains many important changes such as:

    • Accessory storage spaces of any size are now permitted to be classified as part of the occupancy to which they are accessory.
    • New code sections have been introduced addressing medical gas systems and higher education laboratories.
    • Use of fire walls to create separate buildings is now limited to only the determination of permissible types of construction based on allowable building area and height.
    • Where an elevator hoistway door opens into a fire-resistance-rated corridor, the opening must be protected in a manner to address smoke intrusion into the hoistway.
    • The occupant load factor for business uses has been revised to one occupant per 150 square feet.
    • Live loads on decks and balconies increase the deck live load to one and one-half times the live load of the area served.
    • The minimum lateral load that fire walls are required to resist is five pounds per square foot.
    • Wind speed maps updated, including maps for the state of Hawaii. Terminology describing wind speeds has changed again with ultimate design wind speeds now called basic design wind speeds.
    • Site soil coefficients now correspond to the newest generation of ground motion attenuation equations (seismic values).
    • Five-foot tall wood trusses requiring permanent bracing must have a periodic special inspection to verify that the required bracing has been installed.
    • New alternative fastener schedule for construction of mechanically laminated decking is added giving equivalent power-driven fasteners for the 20-penny nail.
    • Solid sawn lumber header and girder spans for the exterior bearing walls reduce span lengths to allow #2 Southern Pine design values.

  4. 2018 International Residential Code

    2018 International Residential Code

    This comprehensive code comprises all building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas and electrical requirements for one- and two-family dwellings and townhouses up to three stories. The IRC contains many important changes such as:

    • An updated seismic map reflects the most conservative Seismic Design Category (SDC) based on any soil type and a new map reflects less conservative SDCs when Site Class A, B or D is applicable.
    • The townhouse separation provisions now include options for using two separate fire-resistant-rated walls or a common wall.
    • An emergency escape and rescue opening is no longer required in basement sleeping rooms where the dwelling has an automatic fire sprinkler system and the basement has a second means of egress or an emergency escape opening.
    • The exemption for interconnection of smoke alarms in existing areas has been deleted.
    • New girder/header tables have been revised to incorporate the use of #2 Southern Pine in lieu of #1 Southern Pine.
    • New tables address alternative wood stud heights and the required number of full height studs in high wind areas.

  5. 2018 International Existing Building Code

    2018 International Existing Building Code

    Encourages the use and reuse of existing buildings. This code covers repair, alteration, addition and change of occupancy for existing buildings and historic buildings, while achieving appropriate levels of safety without requiring full compliance with the new construction requirements contained in the other I-Codes. Key changes include:

    • Section 410 Accessibility has been relocated to a new Section 305. Chapters 4, 5, 6, 13 and 14 have been relocated resulting in a reorganization and new chapter numbering.
    • Requirements for live loads from Chapters 4 and 8 have been combined and placed in Chapter 3 to apply for all compliance methods.
    • Structural components damaged by snow events must be repaired assuming snow loads for new buildings from the IBC.
    • A new exception is added for loading of existing structural elements next to an addition in buildings designed using the IRC.
    • When a work area includes more than half the building in an alteration, wall anchors must be installed at the roof line along reinforced concrete and masonry walls.
    • Buildings undergoing a change of occupancy shall have live, snow, wind and seismic loads checked. Design loads are based on IBC-level forces.
    • When a change of occupancy occurs placing a building in a higher risk category, the seismic loads on the building must be evaluated using IBC-level forces. Access to the building must be maintained when passing through or near other buildings and structures.
    • Where storm shelters are required based on IBC and ICC 500 for Group E Occupancies, any addition to such existing occupancies where the occupant load of the addition is 50 or more will trigger the construction of a storm shelter.
    • Carbon Monoxide provisions have been added in the Prescriptive Method Additions, Alterations Level 2 Additions, and in Additions for I-1, I-2, I-4 and R Occupancies.
    • Emergency Escape and Rescue Opening provisions related to being operational have been added to Prescriptive Compliance Method and Alterations Level 1.
    • Single exit buildings and spaces under Alteration Levels 2 and 3 have been modified to be more consistent with the IBC.
    • The Alterations Level 2 requirement that water for automatic fire sprinkler system be available at the floor of alteration without the need for a fire pump has been moved to Chapter 9 for Alterations Level 3 and the fire pump criterion was deleted.
