You will be lead you through the complexities of assessing accessibility for residential kitchen and bathroom remodeling jobs by an experienced remodeling contractor. Based on the requirements of the International Residential Code, used by jurisdictions throughout Johnson County, and NKBA standards, you will learn a systematic approach to this increasingly complicated art and science of accessibility remodeling. Learn from an expert not
just what is required by the code, but common situations and pitfalls. We will consider not just code-based requirements, but also requirements driven by the plumbing, mechanical, and electrical provisions of the code with an emphasis toward accessibility issues for kitchens and baths.
12/29/2021 - 2018 (and 2021) IRC Wood Wall Bracing
One of the things that make this part of the code book so overwhelming is that it includes tables and rules for
other regions that have seismic activity and higher wind speeds that do not apply to the central U.S.
Attendees will receive a Quick-Reference Guide that is an abridged version of the code with the basic rules,
tables, and a step-by-step process for determining wall bracing requirements. Several examples will be
worked in class to demonstrate the use of different techniques. Attendees will be given the opportunity to
download an Excel spreadsheet that automates wall bracing calculations.
