What will be covered?
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the training will begin at 9 a.m.
SESSION 1: Tiny Homes
1 Hour
This engaging presentation will address types and features of tiny homes and the pros and cons of upcoming tiny home code provisions. Tiny Homes have been gaining popularity in recent years and are believed by many to be complimentary to sustainability, green and environmental protection initiatives as well as compatible with downsizing and more financial freedom. Certain elements, components and spaces within tiny homes however, do not comply with the California Residential Code (CRC). The Membership of the ICC has now approved an appendix in the 2018 IRC that will address tiny home provisions and will be applicable if specifically adopted.
SESSION 2: Mass Timber in the California Building Code
1 Hour
There has been a surge of interest to utilize cross laminated timber (CLT) – now incorporated in the 2015 International Building Code (IBC) and the 2015 National Design Specification® (NDS®) for wood construction.
CLT is now included in the 2016 California Building Code (CBC) and is an option for use wherever heavy timber construction is approved for various types of construction in the CBC, for interior building elements in Type III construction, or for any building element in Type V construction.
This presentation explores the use of CLT with focus on what mass timber is and how it is used in the current code. A brief overview of fire resistance, structural properties, current status of seismic design criteria, along with examples of projects either built or currently under construction will be presented along with clarifications provided by approved updates coming in the 2018 IBC and 2018 NDS.
SESSION 3: Membership Forum
1 Hour
Engage with your peers, Code Council Board members and executive staff during a candid discussion of membership programs, services, initiatives, innovations, and more. This is the third stop of the Members Forum Roadshow, the final stop will be at the Annual Conference in Columbus, OH!
SESSION 4: Marijuana Facilities and the Building Code
1.5 Hours
If you have questions about how the passing of California Proposition 64, legalizing the recreational use of marijuana, affects the use, occupancy classification, egress, or hazard classification of buildings, this presentation is a must-attend event.
Be better able to identify the sections of the 2016 California Building Standards Code, Title 24, that are most relevant to marijuana facilities and the correct and effective application after you attend this seminar.
Remember – this complimentary event is being offered as an exclusive ICC Member benefit, but space is limited to the first 130 registrants. Register today to lock in your plans.
