The course is an overview of the means of egress and accessibility requirements included in Chapter 10 and 11 of the 2015 IBC. It is geared for those who want to gain a general understanding of the purpose of and reasons behind the code requirements.

The presentation will include discussions of what an architect needs to know to design the means of egress system in buildings. Subjects included in the class will be calculating occupant loads for different occupancies; determining the egress width, number of exits and travel distance; options for horizontal and single exits; and options for protection of exits including accessible means of egress.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. List and describe each of the three parts of a means of egress.
  2. Identify the fundamental means of egress design issues and performance requirements.
  3. Identify accessibility requirements in context of who they benefit and where and why they originated.
