Name: Understanding the NC Existing Build Code
Date: March 30, 2023
Time: 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT
Event Description:

The area of focus will be Work Area Method of Compliance.

The Work Area Method is a proportionate method of compliance: The greater the rehab scope (based on type of work, and to a lesser extent, area of work), the more the project must be brought into compliance with the standards of new construction. The Work Area Method requires the designer to classify the scope of work into one of seven (7) classifications: Repair, Alteration Level 1, Level 2, or Level 3, Change of Occupancy, Addition, or Historic or Relocated Building.
Time will be dedicated to classifying projects scopes and determining the applicable codes.  We will compare project scopes to those defined in Chapter 5.
