It references the design codes and, in some cases, lists modifications to
those codes.

Ben and others with knowledge on the matter...


Is the new CBC similar to the 2001 CBC in that it basically reprints, for
example ACI 318 for concrete, but it's been amended with italics and
strikethrough print?  Or will the new CBC basically have a single paragraph
and refer you to the ACI 318-05?  TIA.

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.
