  • When significant portions of a building?s exterior wall coverings or exterior wall envelope are added or replaced, they must comply with the requirements of Chapters 14 and 26 of the IBC.
  • Snow loads must be addressed during repair of substantial structural damage regardless of whether the damage was a result of snow.
  • Additions, Level 3 alterations and Changes of occupancy in Educational occupancies are now required to meet the enhanced classroom acoustic requirements of Section 808 of ICC A117.1.
  • Additional equipment may be added to a roof without a full structural analysis when the equipment weighs less than 400 pounds and is less than 10 percent of the total roof dead load.
  • With a change of occupancy, a seismic analysis is required for a Group S or Group U occupancy changing to a new occupancy.
