This seminar will focus on the conventional construction
requirements for detached accessory structures (i.e. garages, sheds,
etc.), residential decks, carports, and patio structures to ensure
compliance with the International Residential Code. The intent of this
class is to help building officials and plans examiners to know how to
quickly perform a review of these projects at the counter to see if they
are in compliance with the IRC and will also help building inspectors to
know what to look for in the field.
IBC - Multifamily Dwellings
This class will focus on the specific IBC requirements for
multifamily dwellings such as apartment complexes. There will be some
discussions of podium structures and the new 2015/2018 IBC requirements.
The course will include accessibility requirements of IBC 1107 and
Chapter 10 of ICC A117.1-09 for Type A and B units. It will also cover
some common problems associated with the design of multifamily buildings
including fire rating, exhaust systems, construction types, etc.
Requirements for accessory structures such as pools and carports will
also be discussed.

to San Antonio’s Housing Policy Framework, half of all renters in
the city spend more than a third of their income on rent. This
means that families have less money left over for basic needs like
food, transportation, healthcare, and quality of life. The Housing
Tax Credit (HTC) program helps build and preserve affordable
housing nationwide. Since 1986, the program has helped build
affordable apartments for about 700,000 households in Texas. The
City expects HTCs to fund more than 70% of all affordable
apartments in San Antonio. To receive HTCs, developers apply to the
State. They need a letter of support from the City where they want
to build. The City of San Antonio is updating our criteria for
letters of support and we want your feedback! Visit www.surveymonkey.com/r/HousingTaxCredits
to take the HTC survey.
