Keeping up with the Code - an Update on all the Key Aspects of the NY City and NY State Building Codes


David J. Jacoby, Principal SIMPSON GUMPERTZ & HEGER

AIA Course ID 431COD

10:00 am (EST) – 12:00 pm (EST)

Receive a thorough update to all the new building code changes in the New York City and state Building Codes, both of with are based on the International Code Council’s model codes. Learn about the growing need to incorporate energy efficient design features for commercial, residential, and institutional/public works projects.

Learn about the International Code Council’s code development process. Key changes to the International Building Code (IBC) will be reviewed as this is the model code being used in both the city and the state. The basis for these changes will be discussed as well as the potential impact on building design practices. The new requirements for structure and fire analysis will also be presented, including a discussion of the dangers of exterior insulation.

Concrete Grid Pavements


Daniel G. MorelandLEED GA BELGARD

AIA Course ID 316GRD
USGBC Course ID 90011186

12:00 pm (EST) – 1:00 pm (EST)

This program examines the use of concrete grid paving systems on LEED projects. Attendees will learn of the advantages of these types of systems for green strategies involving stormwater control on sites. The features and benefits of this system make a compelling case for sustainable site paving applications.
