The International Building Code, or IBC for short, can be difficult to navigate even for those well-versed in it. In a presentation shared in May, Beck kicks off the discussion about the IBC by detailing how who has jurisdiction plays a vital role in what part of the IBC is followed. From city to county, jurisdictions that use third-party code services and “choose your own adventure” states such as Illinois & Texas, Beck dives into the intricate ins and outs of expertly navigating the IBC by jurisdiction.
Beck’s presentation doesn’t stop at discussing jurisdictions, he dives much deeper into the code in an hour-long presentation with all the need-to-know details of the IBC. Check out the whole video here.
