3 Course Overview Review impactful changes to the base language between the 2009 and 2015 I-Codes International Building Code 2015 International Existing Building Code 2015 International Mechanical Code 2015 International Energy Conservation Code 2013 ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Grace Period, no longer 2012 Jurisdictions

4 Chapter 1: Conflicting Provisions between Codes and Standards 2015 IBC Section Conflicts. Where conflicts occur between provisions of this code and referenced codes and standards, the provisions of this code shall apply Provisions in Referenced Codes and Standards. Where the extent of the reference to a referenced code or standard includes subject matter that is within the scope of this code or the International Codes listed in Section 101.4, the provisions of this code or the International codes listed in Section 101.4, as applicable, shall take precedence over the provisions in the referenced code or standard.

5 Chapter 1: Flood zones 2015 IBC Section Determination of substantially improved or substantially damaged existing buildings and structures in flood hazard areas. For applications for reconstruction, rehabilitation, repair, alteration, addition or other improvement of existing buildings or structures located in flood hazard areas, the building official shall determine if the proposed work constitutes substantial improvement or repair of substantial damage. Where the building official determines that the proposed work constitutes substantial improvement or repair or substantial damage and where required by this code, the building official shall require the building to meet the requirements of Section Section 1612 references Flood Loads. Substantially Improved and Substantially Damaged are defined in Chapter 2 and by Federal Regulations. A substantial improvement is work that equals or exceeds 50% of the market value of the building.

6 Chapter 1: Change of Use or Occupancy 2009 IBC Section No building or structure shall be used or occupied, and no change in the existing occupancy classification of a building or structure or portion thereof shall be made, until the building official has issued a certificate of occupancy therefore as provided herein IBC Section No building or structure shall be used or occupied, and no change in the existing use or occupancy classification of a building or structure or portion thereof shall be made, until the building official has issued a certificate of occupancy therefore as provided herein.

7 Chapter 4: Egress Travel Through an Atrium 2015 IBC Section Exit Access Travel Distance Egress not through an atrium shall comply with Section 1017 Egress through an atrium at the level of discharge shall comply with Section 1017 Egress through an atrium not at the level of discharge shall not exceed 200 feet Maximum of 50% of interior exit stairways are permitted to egress through an atrium on the level of discharge

The incidental accessory occupancies listed in Table shall be separated from the remainder of the building or be equipped with an automatic fire-extinguishing system, or both, in accordance with Table IBC General. Incidental uses located within single occupancy or mixed occupancy buildings shall comply with the provisions of this section. Incidental uses are ancillary functions associated with a given occupancy that generally pose a greater level of risk to that occupancy and are limited to those uses listed in Table 509.

13 Chapter 5: Incidental Uses-General Provisions

14 Chapter 5: Horizontal Building Separation 2009 IBC Section Condition 2. The building below the horizontal assembly is no more than one story above grade plane IBC Section Condition 2, which limits the height of the building below the horizontal assembly, is deleted.

17 Chapter 7: Vertical Openings Vertical openings in Section 708 of the 2009 IBC have been moved to Section 712. There was a significant reformatting of vertical openings between the 2009 and 2012 IBC. The code now places an emphasis on the presence of vertical openings rather than on shaft enclosures, recognizing that the use of shaft enclosures is just one of many acceptable protective measures that can be utilized to address the hazards related to vertical openings.

18 Chapter 7: Membrane Penetrations Section in 2009 IBC moved to Section in 2015 IBC and two exceptions are added: 6. Noncombustible items that are cast into concrete building elements and that do not penetrate both top and bottom surfaces of the element 7. The ceiling membrane of 1- and 2-hour fire-resistance-rated horizontal assemblies is permitted to be interrupted with the double wood top plate of a wall assembly that is sheathed with Type X gypsum wallboard, provided that all penetrating items through the double top plates are protected in accordance with Section or and the ceiling membrane is tight to the top plates.

19 Chapter 7: Ducts Transitioning between Shafts Section Ducts and Air Transfer Openings. Ducts transitioning horizontally between shafts shall not require a shaft enclosure provided that the duct penetration into each associated shaft is protected with dampers comply with this section. Ducts are now expressly allowed to exit a shaft, transition horizontally, and enter another shaft without continuous shaft construction.

49 International Mechanical Code

50 Chapter 2 International Mechanical Code 2009 IMC ENVIRONMENTAL AIR. Air that is conveyed to or from occupied areas through ducts which are not part of the heating or airconditioning system, such as ventilation for human usage, domestic kitchen range exhaust, bathroom exhaust, and domestic clothes dryer exhaust IMC ENVIRONMENTAL AIR. Air that is conveyed to or from occupied areas through ducts which are not part of the heating or airconditioning system, such as ventilation for human usage, domestic kitchen range exhaust, bathroom exhaust, domestic clothes dryer exhaust, and parking garage exhaust. Further clarifies that parking garage exhaust outlets can be 3 feet from a property line, 3 feet from operable windows and 10 feet from mechanical air intakes.

51 2015 International Mechanical Code (IMC) Equipment and Appliances on Roofs or Elevated Structures Permanent access is required to equipment and appliances on a roof or elevated structure higher than 16 feet above grade Ventilation Required Mechanical ventilation is required in the dwelling units if infiltration is less than 5 ACH when tested in accordance with IECC. Maximum envelope leakage allowed by IEEC is less than 0.4 CFM/SF which typically will results in less than 5 ACH. Mechanical ventilation implicitly is required for all residential dwelling units Intake Opening Locations Minimum clearance between an air intake opening and any public way is measured from the opening to the lot line, not center line of the public way

52 2015 International Mechanical Code (IMC) Example of exterior wall leakage rate 0.4 CFM/SF of exterior skin VS 5 AC/hr for allowable natural ventilation of residential units

53 2015 IMC - Continuation Enclosed Parking garages ventilation CO detectors are required to be used in conjunction with NO2 detectors 505 Domestic Kitchen Exhaust Where ducted hoods are used they should be exhausted independent of all other systems, the cleanout shall be provided at the bottom of the shaft, no offsets of ductwork in the shafts (similar to dryer exhaust)
