Renovate, repair, or retrofit existing buildings in complete compliance with the 2018 IEBC
This practical guide shows, step by step, how to apply the provisions of the 2018 International Existing Building Code (R) (IEBC) when performing repairs, change of occupancy retrofits, and seismic evaluations in buildings of all sizes. The book contains all the information you need to understand with the complex provisions in the code and apply them properly to meet structural safety requirements.
2018 International Existing Building Code Handbook (R) opens with an overview of the IEBC and of permits, construction documents, and other administration requirements. It goes on to explain the three different project methods that can be followed under the IEBC-the prescriptive method, the work area method, and the performance compliance method. Throughout, flowcharts and illustrated examples clearly demonstrate the proper application of the code in real-world projects.
