This volume analyzes key changes to the 2018 International Building Code (IBC) since the 2015 version, and the reasons behind the changes. Organized to follow the general layout of the code, chapters address eight general categories: administration; building planning; fire protection; means of egress; accessibility; the building envelope, structural systems, and construction materials; building services, special devices, and special additions; and appendices. They include the change type, photos, application examples, illustrations, and summaries and discussion of the significance of the changes. This edition includes a limited number of structural and non-structural changes to the 2018 edition of the International Existing Building Code. (Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
