The International Building Code (IBC) and International Existing Building Code (IEBC) give consideration to historic buildings to accommodate their use and reuse for a multitude of purposes.
Ted Vedock, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP, BD+C, an experienced preservation architect whose firm has worked on more than 120 historic buildings, will use case studies to illustrate alternative compliance paths.

· Discuss how existing and historic buildings are addressed in the International Building Code and International Existing Building Code.
· Compare and contrast alternative compliance paths available to the project designer.
· Cite examples of alternative compliance paths that have been successfully used in historic preservation through case studies.
· Recall historic architectural elements, finishes, and materials saved in the case studies and discuss how similar strategies can protect historic materials in future work.
