The Committee on Architecture for Education (CAE) is a large and active group of architects and allied professionals concerned with the quality and design of all types of educational, cultural, and recreational facilities.
Each time our state and local jurisdiction adopt a new version of the ICC codes, we have to manually take our in-house compliance checklist and work line by line to see where the changes have occurred so that we can update our checklist. Is there an easier way? Does anyone have a checklist for the 2018 IBCC that they are willing to share or can be made public. I've looked on the ICC website but cannot find that they have a compliance checklist for the 2018 version. What are other firms doing?
