2015 IBC

This course has two sessions; the morning and afternoon session. The morning session is 2015 IBC Exit Systems and the afternoon session is 2015 IBC Exterior Wall and Opening Protection.

AM SESSION – 2015 IBC Exit Systems:This seminar addresses the provisions of Chapter 10 of the 2015 International Building Code® (IBC®) regarding specific aspects of the means of egress, those components regulated as exits. Specific topics include:
Means of egress components that are defined as exits
Required exit elements
Specific technical criteria for exits
Regulation of the exit discharge system
PM SESSION – 2015 IBC Exterior Wall and Opening Protection: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. Specific topics include:
Fire separation distance
Location on lot
Multiple buildings on the same lot
Type of construction
Combustible materials on exterior side of wall
Exitways, including exterior exit stairways, exit courts, interior exit stairways and exterior balconies
Exterior areas of assisted rescue
