The New 2013 CBC – New Easier to Use Format
California Building Standards Commission adopted 2013 California Building Standards Code, including Part 2, Chapter 11B developed by the Division of the State Architect. The new code integrate existing state building code provisions with those from the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design. The new regulations will, for the first time ever, align existing California and federal access regulations for everything ranging from parking spaces and handrails to public housing. The result is that for the first time there will be a single set of standards that meet both state and federal requirements. The 2013 CBC will go into effect on January 1, 2014.
Focus of this class will be:
- How to take advantage of the new format
- Understanding the “Safe Harbor” provisions
- What is an “incremental change”
- Key changes to California Accessibility that we encounter everyday
