MASS TIMBER BUILDINGS AND THE IBC®

Developed by ICC and American Wood Council, this first edition provides an overview of requirements for mass timber construction as found in the 2021 International Building Code® (IBC®). The document reviews the 2015 IBC’s recognition of cross-laminated timber (CLT), the reorganization of heavy timber provisions in the 2018 IBC, followed by the historic changes in the 2021 IBC and International Fire Code® (IFC®) for tall mass timber construction. The 2021 IBC and IFC include important changes in material technologies and their expanded use as proposed by the ICC Ad Hoc Committee on Tall Wood Buildings. Three new types of construction (Types IV-A, IV-B and IV-C) defined and included in the 2021 codes allow the use of mass timber for buildings of taller heights, more stories above grade, and greater allowable areas compared to existing provisions for heavy timber buildings.

ICC is Awarded ANSI Accreditation

19-16876_AC_ANSI_Accred_EBL_Header_FINAL_188029

The International Code Council (ICC) is Awarded
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accreditation

On March 29, 2019 ICC was granted initial accreditation under ISO/IEC 17024:2012 from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Personal Certification Accreditation Committee (PCAC) for the following certification programs:
  • Residential Building Inspector - B1
  • Commercial Building Inspector - B2
Who Accredits a Certification Organization?
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) that’s who!
ANSI administers an accreditation program for certification agencies through their accreditation program based on the International Standard ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024. ANSI accreditation is recognized across borders and is the official U.S. representative to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and, via the U.S. National Committee, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).

What is the process to receive an ANSI accreditation?

ANSI accreditation is completely voluntary. Certification agencies are not required to receive ANSI accreditation, yet, accreditation by ANSI under its consensus and due process-based system provides certification agencies with an exemplary level of credibility, integrity and trust.
The ANSI accreditation process involves both a review of a paper application and the performance of an assessment (onsite visit) to validate information provided by the applicant. The onsite assessment for accreditation of personnel certification is unique to the ANSI accreditation process. On average, the overall process to meet requirements for ANSI accreditation is 12 to 24 months.

Why is ANSI accreditation important to the ICC Assessment Center and their Certifications?

  • The government and regulators rely on ANSI accreditation because of the proven outcomes of accredited programs. Government entities look to ANSI to provide accreditation programs that improve industry practices and distinguish quality certification programs.
  • ANSI is the only accreditor for standards as American National Standards.
  • A report from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) cites ANSI 17024 accreditation programs as a tool to make certification program more reliable and rigorous.
  • A report from the Corporation for a Skilled Workforce (CSW) highlights the role played by ANSI 17024 accreditation in the development of an effective workforce credentialing market in the U.S.
  • ANSI believes accredited certifications are critical, particularly in areas relating to public health, national security, safety, and the environment, which are all areas in alignment with ICC philosophy.
  • The manner in which the B1 and B2 exams are accredited is the same standard to which ICC holds all of their certification exams.

 Why is ANSI accreditation important to YOU, the Certification holder?

  • Receiving an ANSI accredited certification is a mark of distinction. It shows that you are not about just meeting a standard, but about going beyond to pursue excellence.
  • The ANSI accredited certification signals to an employer that you have undergone a valid assessment to verify that you have the necessary competencies.
  • It gives you assurance that an ICC certification has gone through the rigorous process of accreditation to bring to you the most reliable and adept certification.

Architect and Engineer Design Coordination

This 1-hour interactive online course will analyze project scopes, scheduling, quality control, and the permitting process; all items that will need to be coordinated before and during the design of the project.

2018 IBC® Means of Egress

This seminar addresses numerous provisions in the 2018 International Building Code® (IBC®) where the code contains requirements pertaining to establishing a means of egress in buildings. During this training, participants will listen to lecture and view examples, as well as discuss sections of the IBC that pertain to means of egress. They will participate in activities that involve a set of plans.

Accessibility and Usability: Commercial and Residential

This seminar focuses on the minimum requirements for new or existing construction of accessible commercial buildings and residential facilities for compliance with the International Building Code® (IBC®) and ICC A117.1 Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities. It addresses the design, plan review and inspection of residential buildings and facilities to ensure that people with physical impairments, visual impairments and hearing impairments can use the facilities. Attendees will participate in activities that involve questions and answers, discussion and case study, performing parts of individually and in groups.

Significant Changes to the A117.1, 2017 Edition

This course offers an overview and in-depth coverage of the changes from the 2003 to the 2017 A117.1 Accessibility Standard.

This course uses the ICC publication Significant changes to the A117.1 Accessibility Standard – 2017 Edition.

2018 IBC® Mixed Occupancies

Based on the provisions of International Building Code® (IBC®) Section 508, this seminar addresses those special requirements applicable to buildings containing two or more occupancy classifications. The three mixed-occupancy options are presented along with examples and exercises that illustrate the proper application of the provisions.

2018 IBC® Allowable Heights and Areas

Based on the provisions of International Building Code® (IBC®) Chapter 5, this seminar focuses on how a building’s occupancy classification and type of construction relate to the maximum building size permitted by the IBC. The approach to determining a building’s maximum allowable height and area is explained, including use of Table 503 and all related permitted increases due to sprinkler protection and frontage open space. Detailed provisions related to mezzanines and unlimited area buildings are also addressed.

Overview of the ICC 500

The ICC 500 is a standard for the design and construction of storm shelters. This course will review the scoping, or where it is required to use the ICC 500 in the codes. There will also be an overview of the technical requirements, or the how to, in Chapters 1-9 in the ICC 500.
