Description
Learn the requirements needed to instill safety and stability in existing and historic buildings – without requiring full compliance with the new construction requirements in the building code. The 2015 INTERNATIONAL EXISTING BUILDING CODE® LOOSE LEAF contains requirements intended to encourage the use and reuse of existing buildings by covering important topics such as repairs, alterations, additions, and changes of occupancy, making this an ideal addition to a user's code products. Chapter changes in this updated code include requirements related to the addition of sleeping units and dwelling units as they relate to the requirements for Accessible units, and Type A units and Type B units have been moved to Chapter 11 on Additions.

  • Establishes performance-based provisions that adequately protect public health, safety, and welfare.
