Bringing Existing Building Enclosures Up to Code
Jennifer Doyle, P.E. of Engineered Exteriors, PLLC

With the ever changing requirements of applicable codes, renovation of existing buildings frequently triggers upgrades of the building enclosure to meet these requirements. This course will examine current Code requirements affecting the building enclosure, how compliance with these codes can be triggered in a renovation project, and case studies of specific projects where this occurred.

Learning Objectives:

Neighborhood Cohesion

Our Advocacy Committee is intertwined in two hot items in this week's Codes & Ordinances subcommittee of Planning and Zoning commission agenda.

One of these items, a proposed change in the definition of "bedroom" in the Land Development Code, was brought to the AIA by a member of the contact team for the Central Austin Combined Neighborhoods organization.  One question is whether unclear definitions contribute to "super duplexes" that generate excessive traffic, trash, or other nuisances.
