1979 SBC

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

I have a project in which we’re renovating a building built in 1983 under the 1979 (Southern) Standard Building Code (SBC), and I need to find out the exact verbiage of the live load provisions.  Would anybody who has a copy of that code be willing to scan and e-mail (or fax) me a couple of pages?  I need the section that addresses live load reductions and the table of minimum live loads.  Specifically, I need to know the minimum live load provision for restaurant space, and whether that was reducible.


If you have this information, please send it to jadair(--nospam--at) or fax it to 469-287-4334.  If there’s anybody who can help, I’d be very grateful.
