The IBC is an essential tool used to provide public safety, health and welfare. Designing with new materials and complex client programs can push the boundaries of a straightforward code summary. This session will delve deeply into the requirements related to Structural Design in the Building Code. 

Chapter 16 establishes minimum design requirements so that the structural components of buildings are proportioned to resist the loads that are likely to be encountered. In addition, this chapter assigns buildings and structures to risk categories that are indicative of their intended use. Architects need to thoroughly understand the application of load specifications and adherence to serviceability criteria to protect the health, safety, and welfare of those working on the site and its eventual occupants. In addition, architects must be able to explain the regulations to the owner and construction teams. Thorough understanding of the building code is essential for architects to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the occupants of the built environment.
