Prescriptive Residential Wood Deck Construction Guide (DCA6-2015 Version)

Hundreds of wood decks get built every year and some without the proper guidance for designing or constructing a safe deck. However, AWC DCA 6, which has been recently updated, includes guidance on provisions for the 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) pertaining to single level residential wood deck construction. Provisions contained in this document that are not included in the IRC are considered good practice recommendations. This webinar will provide an overview of DCA 6 along with its Commentary and Appendices and include several examples showing application of the deck guide.

Outcomes of ICC Tall Wood AdHoc Committee: Mass Timber Provisions in the 2021 I-Codes

In early 2016, the ICC Board of Directors approved the creation of an ad hoc committee to explore the building science of tall wood buildings with the scope being to investigate the feasibility of and take action to develop code changes for tall wood buildings. Since that time, the Tall Wood Building (TWB) Ad Hoc Committee has reviewed voluminous materials regarding tall wood buildings, including results of various testing around the world, as well as studies domestically in support of the TWB charge to conduct a thorough review of the science of tall wood. The TWB developed its own test scenario(s) to substantiate any code change proposals (testing was carried out at ATF labs); and worked to develop a comprehensive set of technically-substantiated code changes for consideration during the 2018 Group A code development process. The intensive research performed by the Committee was submitted under the ICC Code Development Process, along with the resulting proposals developed by Committee consensus. All of the Group A TWB proposals have been approved. The TWB has also developed a set of Group B proposals, submitted in January 2019.
