The International Residential Building Code (IRC) is the most widely adopted model code for 1 and 2 family homes. Significant changes in the 2009 and subsequent editions of the IRC widely affect the design of stairways. Building codes applicable to Stairways, Handrails and Guards are a minimum standard of safety that can be easily exceeded providing an additional margin of safety for residential occupants and provide the aesthetic desired. Recent changes have clarified many issues previously subject to wide interpretation. Many of these changes have already been adopted by local jurisdictions or are being considered. An understanding of the intent and direction of the IRC model code and how it is applied to the design, specification and construction of stairways will be provided. This course requires completion of the AIA evaluation to receive credit and certificate of completion
