Re: 2001 CBC Chapter A

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
There is a Chapter 21A in the California Building Code, Volume 2, which is similar to "Chapter 21 - Masonry", also in the CBC, except that it provides the building requirements for masonry as they apply to schools and hospitals.

Also, Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations (CCR), which inlcudes all California Building Standards, has a Part 7 entitled "California Elevator Safety Construction Code" available as a free pdf down load at: (175 pages) but this primarily deals with the mechanical design and operation requirements.

Masonry is Chapter 21.  In Volume 2.  No Chapter A though…  Good Luck.

I am using a spreadsheet created by Engineering International that references the 2001 CBC Chapter A for masonry design of an elevator shaft. I’m just wondering what Chapter A looks like. I’m guessing that it must be in Volume 2 somewhere but I’d like to know for sure before I pick it up.
