NYS Building Code - Anticipated Changes and Site Provisions

SUNY ESF is proud to partner with the Upstate Chapter of ASLA to offer a 2-hour course on "NYS Building Code - Anticipated Changes & Site Provisions"

This workshop will provide an overview of the anticipated 2006 Building Code of NYS, with a focus on: exterior handicap accessible route, fire department access, fire separation distance, stairs (including guards & handrails), and a quick overview of the major anticipated changes coming in the next edition.  This course is intended for landscape architects, architects, and site engineers to provide them with information on the typical code provisions that are issues in design and to give them an idea of the anticipated major changes to come in the upcoming new edition of the NYS Codes.
