Join us and learn about significant changes affecting multifamily construction in the 2018 editions of the International Code Council's (ICC) International Building Code (IBC) and related codes and standards. During this session you will discover the impacts of updated structural standards on roof coverings and roof framing in high-wind regions and where buildings now need to be designed to resist earthquakes. You will also explore new provisions to address fires in buildings under construction, including fire watch requirements and enhanced protection for attics.
