Annotations for International Existing Building Code 2006
The 2006 International Existing Building code contains requirements intended to encourage the use and reuse of existing buildings. The scope covers repair, alteration, addition, and change of occupancy for existing buildings and historic buildings, while achieving appropriate levels of safety without requiring full compliance with the new construction requirments in the building code.
The 2006 International Existing Building code® (IEBC®) contains requirements for improving and upgrading existing buildings to conserve resources and building history while achieving appropriate levels of safety. This is a comprehensive, excellent reference for code officials, engineers, architects, inspectors, plans examiners, contractors and anyone who needs a better understanding of these regulations. Fully compatible with all the International Codes, the 2006 IEBC® provides up-to-date, comprehensive coverage that establishes minimum regulations for building systems using prescriptive- and performance-related provisions.
