Navigating the International Building Code (IBC) can be somewhat complicated, puzzling, and time consuming. This course, IBC Code Mapping for Architects, is intended to help guide designers through this circuitous labyrinth more quickly and with confidence. Viewed through an architect’s lens during the early evolution of a design, the mapping presents an approachable path through the IBC’s 35 chapters – with some 325 sections – which affect the formation of a design and consequently the building construction. With a map of the key codes, a design can absorb the regulations early, with less difficulty, and can mature with assurance that it has accounted for the codes it’s required to be in compliance with.
