There is no difference between the IBC and CBC if you are designing standard occupancy structures. The only amendments California has made to the model code is for special occupancies such as schools and hospitals.

Subject: 2007 California Building Code

Has anyone had a chance to look at the 2007 California Building Code?  How does it treat a regular commercial building?  Does it simply refer to the ASCE 7-05 or does it make a lot of modifications?  I figured for school or hospital projects there will be many modifications, but I was more curious about a simple commercial building.  I'm trying to determine how many copies to buy for our office.


Thank you,

John Atilano, P.E.
