Codes Forum: Discussion with Local Building Officials

From Codes Committee Co-Chairs Anthony Boutte, Allied Member and Kriss Raupach, AIA:

"In anticipation of the new California Building Code, the East Bay AIA Code Committee has scheduled a
Brown Bag Roundtable discussion with several local Building Officials. The Building Officials attending the Roundtable will be:

Jon Ewigleben, Building Services, City of Oakland
Margaret Elliott, Building Official, City of Hayward

Date: 27 September 2007
Time: Noon - 1:30 pm
Place: AIA East Bay Chapter Office
1405 Clay Street
Oakland, CA 94612

Phone: 510/464-3600

The main focus of the Roundtable will be to address how these jurisdictions plan on incorporating the new ICB based CBC requirements into their respective jurisdictions. Other anticipated topics include occupancy review by different State Agencies, building green, some of the more significant changes from the UBC, new ordinances, adoption date and pre-design meetings, as well as the staff's training in the new CBC.

We welcome questions in advance for these Building Officials. We ask that questions address the bigger picture of the new CBC and its impact on the permitting process and not address project specific issues.

Please send your Roundtable questions and Building Official's "advance questions" to Anthony Boutte at

I hope that you will be able to attend this Roundtable and look forward to seeing you there.

Anthony Boutte, Allied Member
Kriss Raupach, AIA
