2018 IRC Accessory Structures, Decks, Carports, & Patio Covers
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.

2018 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.

SpeakUP on Housing Tax Credits Survey

According 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 to take the HTC survey.
