RE: California Building Code

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

We are finally joining the rest of civilized world. It will be a leap frog going from 97 UBC to 06 IBC, but it works out well since the ASCE-7-05 will be a much better document to use for seismic design than the ASCE-7-02. I personally can’t wait, since IBC is also a much better code to use for non-structural provisions such as fire safety and egress.


Good riddance NFPA!

Well, it is now official, California has reversed the decision to adopt the NFPA code and will be adopting the ICC codes.  The press statement was not specific on a time line, though a two year period was mentioned as the normal legislative cycle.  Based on this we in CA would finally see adoption of a new building code in 2007.
