I recently helped an architect design a wood-framed wall assembly with different membrane arrangements on each side of the wall. We used the calculated fire resistance approach from IBC 722 to achieve a one-hour rating for the wall. This project led me to create a new tool that calculates the fire resistance of the wall assembly based on the materials that you choose for each side. Check it out at the link below!
I'm excited to launch a new plumbing fixture count tool that really speeds up the process of determining the required number of plumbing fixtures per IBC Chapter 29 and the IPC. Take a look here and let me know what you think!
I've also made an update to the 2015 IBC Allowable Height, Area and Stories calculator. With this update, you can now manually enter the building frontage and the calculations will update accordingly. You can check out that update here:
