Chicago Building Code Modernization: Comparison of Prototype Building Designs

The Chicago Building Code (CBC) was comprehensively revised in 2019. The revised structural requirements are based upon the International Building Code (IBC) - the modern national standard, while maintaining and introducing special Chicago-specific provisions. After 1 August 2020, all new designs submitted for approval by the city will need to conform to the new code.

This paper develops three prototype buildings that would be subject to the new structural standards, all of which can use prescriptive code provisions for reference.
