And__ if it's an existing building for DSA projects, you need to get ASCE 41 on top of whatever california amendments there are in the A chapters.

I just purchased my 2007 CBC with all the referenced code.  ICC had a deal.  It cost me close to $1500.  What happen to the day when you can purchase the code for $100 and you are good to go.


Now we definitely have to start charging more just to purchase the code.

Great.  So we'll all have to have (access to) the new CBC, IBC, ASCE, ACI, MSJC, AISC, AF&PA NDS, PhD, XYZ, PDQ…  Thanks.

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,
