BUILDING CODES FOR BUILDING DECKS
Course 3 of 4
DOWN THE LOAD PATH
From the decking to the foundation, this course covers, in detail, all segments of a deck load path (except for ledgers and lateral loads covered in course 2). New IRC tables specific to deck joist and beam spans are discussed in depth, including little known details that increase their design flexibility. Foundation and posts can now be sized using tributary area and provisions for their connections provide for many methods. This course reveals how the 2021 IRC is the most helpful yet in prescriptive deck design and construction.
This course is approximately 3.0 hours and approved for 0.30 CEU from the International Code Council and 3.0 HSW LU from the American Institute of Architects.
