Key Changes to City Building Codes: 2018 IBC, IEBC, IECC & IRC

February 7, 3:30 – 5:00 pm

Submitted for approval of 1.5 GBCI CE Hours and 1.5 AIA LU

In August of 2018 the City of St. Louis became the first municipality in the region to adopt the International Code Council’s suite of 2018 building codes. In this in-depth seminar, we’ll review the key changes to the 2018 International Building Code (IBC), International Existing Building Code (IEBC), International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and International Residential Code (IRC), with an emphasis on energy efficiency. Speakers Jessica Deem, Architect at Virescent, and Gretchen Waddell Barwick, Assistant Chapter Director at Missouri Sierra Club, will:

  • Describe the key changes to the 2018 IBC, IEBC, IECC and IRC, with an emphasis on energy efficiency.
  • Review special considerations for implementing the 2018 codes in existing buildings and historic renovations.
  • Identify critical requirements for air-sealing the building enclosure and mandatory air-leakage testing.
  • Explain the local St. Louis code development process and locally adopted amendments.
