Two aspects of the International Building Code that are a source of confusion are (1) mixed occupancy requirements and (2) the construction protection of horizontal assemblies such as floors, ceilings, and roofs. This year we have Doug Thornburg, a popular teacher with the International Code Council, returning to spend three hours on each subject.
2015 MIXED OCCUPANCIES – 3 hours 

Based on the provisions of IBC Section 508, this seminar addresses those special requirements applicable to buildings containing two or more occupancy classifications. The three mixed-occupancy options are presented along with examples and exercises that illustrate the proper application of the provisions. Specific topics include:
  • Occupancy classification
  • Mixed occupancy conditions
  • Accessory occupancies
  • Nonseparated occupancies
  • Separated occupancies
  • Multi-story conditions
  • Learning Objectives: 
    Upon completion, participants will be better able to:
         
  • Define the concept for addressing mixed-occupancy buildings
  • Identify the three options that are available for regulating mixed-occupancy buildings
  • Describe the relationship of occupancy classification, allowable height, allowable area and occupancy separation to mixed-occupancy buildings
  • Identify incidental uses and understand how they differ from mixed-occupancy conditions
  • 2015 IBC FIRE-RESISTANT RATED FLOORS, CEILINGS & ROOFS  – 3 hours 

    IBC Chapter 7 addresses the construction and protection of rated horizontal assemblies, including the differences between floor, floor/ceiling and roof/ceiling assemblies, as well as the protection requirements for penetrations, joint systems, ducts and air transfer openings in each of the separate elements. Additional discussion will look at the test standards used to evaluate the assembly and protection systems and how those protection systems are limited or could be compromised if not installed as tested.  
    Learning Objectives: 
      Upon completion, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify requirements of chapter 7 related to the construction and protection of rated horizontal assemblies.
  • Describe the differences between floor, floor/ceiling and roof/ceiling assemblies. 
  • Describe the protection requirements for penetrations, joint systems, ducts and air transfer openings in each of the separate elements. 
  • Discuss test standards used to evaluate the assembly and protection systems and how those protection systems are limited or could be compromised if not installed as tested.
