Get ready NJ! The 2018 IBC will be adopted Sept 3rd. That is just next week! You can find a link to the IBC here the copy with the changes for NJ are not yet available. If you are not in NJ you can always check out the ICC code adoption map at this link.
When an area adopts the 2021 we will see Cross Laminate Timber allowed up to 18 stories. It will be interesting to see where that takes us. If any of you are working a CLT project and want a consultant, I cant wait to be invited to support a CLT project.
In the meantime however, if you have any questions about firestop however please let me know. I am happy to help if I am able.
In closing I want to welcome a whole new crew from Utah to our blog posts. I was invited to do a class this past weekend. It was a great crew of guys and I had a lot of fun. I hope they learned a lot since they gave up their Saturday to hang out with me. Welcome Utah crew!
All the best,
