Welcome to the Structural Code Committee.
The primary purpose of the Structural Code Committee is to serve and benefit its members. To this end, the Structural Code Committee provides a forum for the exchange, consideration, and discussion of ideas and proposals that are relevant to the construction industry, structural design community, and the building and safety professionals who are actively engaged in the enforcement and applications of the code.
The structural code committee focuses on issues relevant to the structural design of buildings and structures. Topics discussed may include, but are not limited to, structural amendments to the model building code, structural plan review checklists, regional structural concerns, emerging technologies, and more. Meetings are held via WebEX virtual meetings or in person, typically at the LA County Public Works building in Alhambra. See below for upcoming meeting information.
The Structural Code Committee is currently updating existing and develop new structural plan review checklists and information bulletins to reflect the requirements of the upcoming code cycle to assist the membership in the uniform enforcement and application of the structural provisions promulgated in the building codes and material standards. We are also in the final stages of preparation for a bulletin introducing recommendations for the use of Intermodal Cargo Containers Repurposed as Buildings/Structures. Current checklists and other structural documents can be downloaded from links at the bottom of this page.
