The building code is a tool used by designers and authorities with the objective of protecting the public and emergency personnel. It is the duty of the designer and building official to ensure that the intent of the code is satisfied. Although the prescriptive language of the code is intended to protect public health and safety for most projects, every building, site, and design is unique. This course explores the provisions for alternate materials and methods requests (AMMRs) in section 104.11 of the International Building Code® (IBC®) and how they may be used to achieve code compliance.
