Ensure compliance with the 2018 IEBC(R) on alterations, additions, or retrofits to existing buildings

This practical guide shows, step by step, how to apply the provisions of the 2018 International Existing Building Code(R) (IEBC(R)) when carrying out repairs, alterations, additions, changes in occupancy, and detailed evaluations for buildings of all sizes. The book contains all the information you will need to understand the applicable provisions in the code and apply them properly to meet structural, fire, accessibility, and other code-related requirements. The 2018 International Existing Building Code(R) Handbook begins with an overview of the IEBC(R) and of permits, construction documents, and other administrative requirements. It goes on to explain the three different compliance methods that can be followed under the IEBC(R)―the prescriptive method, the work area method, and the performance compliance method. Throughout, diagrams, flowcharts, and illustrated examples clearly demonstrate the proper application of the code.

-An introduction to the 2018 IEBC(R)
-Common provisions
-Prescriptive method
-Work area method
-Performance compliance method
-Relocated buildings
