WEBINAR – Heights & Areas: Using Software to Ease Building Code Analysis

July 13, 2016 – 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm




Join at 10 am Pacific, 11 am Mountain, 12 pm Central, 1 pm Eastern

This session will focus on the Check Height and Area software that reviews and analyzes building height and area compliance with the 2012 International Building Code (IBC), for buildings up to six stories, with up to four occupancy groups at each level. This user-friendly application is created for design professionals and building officials to ease building code analysis. Step-by-step instructions will be provided and common issues related to height and area limitations will be illustrated with examples of actual mixed occupancy group, multi-story buildings.
