Building Code Analysis
Analyzing and applying building codes to your construction project is one of the most critical roles we play as architects. Building codes exist to protect people and property, and they are essential to every building project, no matter its size or nature.
While some building codes are international, most are modified based on your specific jurisdiction. It’s important to have a nuanced understand of your local regulations before the project gets underway, and that’s where Gooss & Associates AIA comes in.
Our team is proud to offer our clients in-depth code reviews to ensure their building projects go off without a hitch. If you’re ready to get started, we invite you to contact our expert team at your convenience.get in touch message us
Trust Our Architects for a Thorough Building Code Review
Over the years, our team has broken down our code review process into several steps, we will consider:
Essentially, the occupancy classification outlines how the building will be used. Hospitals and factories, for example, have very different functions and will require different approaches to safety.
Location determines where the building will be situated on your property and its safety in this location.
The construction type determines how the project will be built, the kind of materials that will be used, and the risks these methods and materials pose to the structure itself.
While not all buildings require the use of sprinklers, they are often the cheapest way to help your facility meet fire safety codes. Thinking about sprinklers and installing them from the get-go is also recommended to save time and money.
The allowable square footage that the building code allows.
Means of Egress
Once the abovementioned factors have been considered, it is the architect’s job to develop a safe pathway out of the building, or several depending on how many people will be using the space.
