13 Prescriptive Compliance Method Chapter 3 Change of Occupancy (307) Cannot change use/occupancy unless the building meets the requirements of IBC for the proposed occupancy. Building official may permit change in use without full IBC compliance if the new use is less hazardous than the existing use based on life and fire risk.
14 Work Area Method Chapters 4 12
15 Work Area Compliance Chapters 4-12 Provisions are based on the type of work as defined in Chapter 4 Repairs (402): Patching, restoration, or replacement of damaged elements to good or sound condition for maintenance purposes.

Level 3 Alteration (405): Renovation area > 50% of the aggregate building area. Change of Occupancy (406) Additions (407) Historic Buildings (408) Relocated Structures (409)
16 Repairs Chapter 5 Nonstructural repair work other than routine maintenance / ordinary repairs requires a permit and can be made with same or like materials. Work shall not make the building less conforming that it was before the repair was undertaken.

20 Level 2 Alteration Floor Openings (703.2) Additional Requirements ( ): If work area exceeds 50% of the floor area, then all vertical openings other than stairways must be enclosed (applies outside work area) Does not include vertical openings in tenant spaces completely outside the scope of work. Stairway Enclosure Requirements ( ): If work area exceeds 50% of the floor area, then all egress stairways must be enclosed with smoke-tight construction (at a minimum) from the highest work area floor and all floors below. Unless enclosure is not required by the IBC
21 Level 2 Alteration Chapter 7 Existing interior finishes in exits and corridors within work area must comply with IBC requirements (703.4) If the work area is > 50% of the floor area, entire floor must use IBC approved finishes Automatic sprinkler systems must be installed in the work area if: (704.2) The work area has exits or corridors shared by more than one tenant or they serve more than 30 occupants The work area exceeds 50% of the floor area The water supply is sufficient The IBC requires it Fire alarm systems are required in the work area for Use Group E, I, and R occupancies (704.4) Required throughout the floor if the work area exceeds 50% of that floor
22 Level 2 Alteration Chapter 7 Means of egress provisions only apply to work areas that include exits or corridors shared by more than one tenant.

Height and area limitations of IBC can not be exceeded If a fire wall is provided between existing building and addition, then the addition can be considered a separate building. Alterations and Repairs If the existing building does not comply with the code for new construction, any alterations or repairs cannot result in the buildings being less safe.
34 Performance Compliance Methods Chapter 13 The design evaluation is comprised of three main categories: Fire Safety Structural Fire Resistance Automatic Fire Detection Fire Alarm Fire-Suppression System Means of Egress Configuration Characteristics Support Features General Safety Fire Safety Parameters Means of Egress Parameters
35 Evaluation Example Chapter 13 Example Automatic Sprinklers Occupancy A-1, A-3, F, M, R, S-1 Categories a b c d e f A A-4, B, E, S Category a Sprinklers are required throughout; sprinkler protection is not provided or the sprinkler system design is not adequate for the hazard protected. 2. Category b Sprinklers are required in a portion of the building; sprinkler protection is not provided or the sprinkler system design is not adequate for the hazard protected. 3.

36 Evaluation Building Score Section Insert points from evaluation of building elements
37 Mandatory Safety Scores Option for building official to require a peer review by a registered design professional prior to issuing a building permit
38 Structural Work Int. Existing Building Code Any work impacting existing structural systems must be evaluated by a structural engineer. Seismic Upgrades For both the Prescriptive Method and Work Area Method generally required when lateral load increased more than 10% due to alteration. However required compliance varies (Prescriptive Method generally preferred). MA Amendment for Masonry Walls (101.10): requires compliance with IEBC Appendix A1. Costly and scheduled for deletion.
39 Energy Code International Energy Conservation Code
40 Energy Code Additions, renovations, and repairs to an existing building system or portion thereof must conform to the code for new construction, without requiring the unaltered portion of the building to comply If the energy use of the building is not increased the following need not comply: Storm windows Glass only replacements in existing sash and frame (unless required elsewhere in IEBC) Existing ceiling, wall, and floor cavities exposed during construction if filled with insulation Construction where existing roof, wall or floor cavity is not exposed
41 Accessibility 521 CMR
42 ADA & Int. Codes Existing Buildings: Alterations Altered portions of a facility are required to comply with the accessibility regulations to the maximum extent feasible. The accessibility of the path of travel and facilities (toilet rooms, drinking fountains, etc.) serving an altered area must also be improved, unless the cost and scope of the overall alteration is disproportionate to the cost of the overall alteration. Disproportionate = cost exceeds 20% of the cost of primary alteration If the cost of alterations to the path of travel or facilities is disproportionate, these areas must still be improved up to 20% of the cost of the primary alteration.
43 ADA Existing Buildings: Removal of Barriers Existing Public Accommodation: architectural barriers must be removed where such removal is able to be carried out without much difficulty or expense. Priorities: Accessible route and entrance to facility. Access to areas within the facility where goods and services are made available to the public. Accessible restroom facilities. Take any other measures necessary to provide access to accommodations, privileges, advantages, goods, or services of a place of public accommodation
44 521 CMR: Massachusetts Architectural Access Board Existing Buildings: Renovations (3.3) The level of compliance for existing buildings is based on the following thresholds: Work costs less than $100,000: only the work being performed is required to comply. Work costs $100,000 or more but less than 30% of assessed value of existing building: in addition to work being performed, an accessible public entrance and an accessible toilet room, telephone and drinking fountain must comply with 521 CMR (if public toilets, telephones and drinking fountains are provided). Exempt Work: Curb cuts, MEP without architectural alterations, roof repair or replacement, window repair or replacement, repointing and masonry repair, septic systems, site utilities, and landscaping.
45 521 CMR: Massachusetts Architectural Access Board Existing Buildings: Renovations (3.3), con t Cost of work is equal to 30% or more of the assessed value of the existing building: entire building is required to comply with 521 CMR. Exempt Work: None In determining applicability of 521 CMR, the cost of all work performed within a 3 year period must be added together.
