Heights and Areas Calculator App
The Heights and Areas (H&A) Calculator app for iPhone and Android is a joint effort of WoodWorks and the American Wood Council. It provides users with an app-based approach to calculating maximum heights and areas for buildings of various occupancies and fire protection based on 2006 to 2015 editions of the International Building Code (IBC). Input a potential building’s geometry, site conditions (e.g., open frontage), type of construction, and occupancy, and allowable heights and areas can be determined.
This calculator is not meant to be a replacement for the IBC and does not encompass all of its design options. The IBC should always be consulted for specific requirements related to designs and site conditions. Learn More
