North and South Carolina Seismic Building Code Seminars

ISAT'S Educational Code Seminar:
Covering the Impact of the 2003 & 2006 International Building Code

ISAT will be hosting three code seminars in North and South Carolina on November 5th & 6th 2008. The purpose of these seminars are to provide a solid base of knowledge regarding the 2003 & 2006 IBC relative to the seismic bracing of Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection utilities. We will provide this base of knowledge in order to empower construction professionals to successfully meet seismic building code compliance. ISAT will help companies determine the seismic cost impact of this new code early on, and provide education to a successful approach of handling the new seismic requirements.

Refreshments will be provided. Space is limited to the first 200 people so sign up today!

Our code seminar will cover the following:

2003 & 2006 IBC

    Overview of the codes referenced in the IBC.
    Key components to understand the code.
    How has it changed from the previous codes?
    Each site, individual floor and each different utility has its own unique seismic requirements. How does this play out?
    What must be braced and how does it change based on site and end use characteristics?
    What is the impact to a project? Understand the impact early in the process.
    What new items must be provided by the MEP and SEOR consultants in order for the GC and subs to perform the code requirements?
    Understanding responsibilities of the design team members?
Quality Assurance Requirements from the Codes

New quality assurance requirement: Contractor Statement of Responsibility
Requirement for third party agency to determine seismic bracing conformance
Who is responsible to provide the building owner a building that is seismic code compliant?
Special Inspection requirements, who is responsible?
