With the transition to the 2018 Edition of the NC Building Code, designers will be contending with many changes between the 2009 IBC and the 2015 IBC, as well as many changes in the amendments adopted by North Carolina. This presentation will seek to highlight changes to the code, as well, as revisit the fundamentals of applying the building code requirements as intended. The program will focus on Chapters 1 through 10 but will also make mention of other related requirements, such as are found in the Fire Code relating to site development. 


  1. Participants will differentiate between the code requirements in the 2012 and 2018 Editions of the NC State Building Code.
  2. Participants will analyze and solve design issues related to code requirements new to the 2018 Edition of the NC State Building Code.
  3. Participants will examine common challenges to appropriate application of the NCSBC related to areas of interpretation.
  4. Participants will analyze on-site related requirements of the 2018 Edition of the NC Fire Code
