Instructor: Rodger Peck
It’s important to recognize the fact that, without a standard to meet, many buildings would simply be, too dangerous and unsafe to occupy or, too costly to maintain. However, it’s not just safety and uses that the code is concerned with. The current, enforceable code, also addresses environmental and energy concerns. The building codes and the building officials that enforce them are there to safeguard the health, safety, property, and public welfare.
The International Re1167sidential Code® (IRC®) was created to serve as a complete, comprehensive code regulating the construction of single-family houses, two-family houses (duplexes) and buildings consisting of three or more townhouse units. This course will recap the basic of code book use, and then outline some of the recent changes.
NOTE: This course is based on the 2015 IRC, but note that Rhode Island is still using the 2012 IRC.
This Course Covers:
- Using the Code Book
- Code Tables, Illustrations, and Footnotes
- Residential Code
