Code Transition: Changes to the 2015 Seattle Building Code

In this seminar, City of Seattle staff from the Department of Construction & Inspections will present an overview of significant changes and key differences between the 2012 Seattle Building Code (SBC) and the 2015 Seattle Building Code (SBC) – all based on the 2015 IBC with local amendments. This course will explain what has changed, why it changed and how to apply the code correctly to future projects as well as explain the significance or intent of the change. There will be an emphasis on specific amendments that differ from IBC, non-structural issues and egress. In addition, City of Seattle staff will discuss vesting options and criteria as we transition from one code version to the other.
