Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

Does not take into account Section 507.
Misleading.

Calculating the allowable area of a building is not as straight forward as it was with the UBC. The allowable area based on the UBC was very prescriptive: input the specific parameters for the project and find the allowable area permitted for the design of the building.

The IBC permits utilizing a weighted average of the building perimeter and frontage values, which are dependent on site and building conditions. This creates a more iterative process that is based on the design of the building.

I agree, that''s why it would be great to have some type of spreadsheet that helps us calculate the "what if" iterations.
Ideally, the spreadsheet would be formatted so it could simply be printed and pasted into the drawings. Thus, the plan checker would be able to easily see the formula input/output and follow the logic of the code analysis.
