About this course

Based on the popular Code Conforming Wood Design (CCWD), a joint publication of the American Wood Council (AWC) and the International Code Council (ICC), this presentation concisely summarizes the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) for commercial and multi-family residential construction. It will explain the determination of maximum building size for eight common use groups using the height and area tables of the 2018 IBC and pre-calculated tables provided in the CCWD. It will also address establishing fire resistance for wood assemblies and heavy timber; special provisions for pedestal buildings; criteria for finishes, appendages, and other wood features; the scoping of referenced wood design standards; an overview of structural provisions in Chapter 23; and requirements for precautions during construction.
