Wood Trusses and the IBC 2006
Building code compliance is critical in the construction industry. The International Building Code (IBC) is used at the state or local level in 47 states plus Washington, D.C. The IBC was developed as a nationwide model code to replace the regional National (NBC), Uniform (UBC) and Standard (SBC) building codes. The IBC has been implemented in 16 states and many local jurisdictions. Since wood trusses are included in many wood framed structures, it is important to understand the truss requirements in the IBC and how these are reflected in the job information presented by the Truss Designer. This 1-hour TTW discusses the requirements for metal plate connected wood trusses in the IBC, especially as they are reflected on a Truss Design Drawing.
