  • The construction of mechanically laminated decking now as a new alternative fastener schedule
  • Reduced span length is applied to solid sawn lumber header and gird spans
  • And much, much more!

There are also two specific changes in regards to the design and construction of covered mall buildings:

  • Exit Passageway Revision (G77 and G78)—This revision states “Where exit passageways provide a secondary means of egress from a tenant space, the exit passageway shall be constructed in accordance with Section 1024.”
  • Property Line FS-15—This revision addresses the allowance of property lines between mall buildings and anchor buildings within an actual mall building.

In general, this is the source if you are designing, building, modifying, or even demolishing built structures. You will find a great amount of useful information. This ranges from building safety, fees, violations, regulations, inspections, occupancy classifications, types of construction, requirements, fire protection systems, smoke protection features, energy efficiency, accessibility, roof assemblies and rooftop structures, structural design, and much, more!
