- January 1, 2002
The first edition of the Prescriptive Method for Insulating Concrete Forms in Residential Construction represented the outcome of an initial effort to fulfill the need for prescriptive construction requirements and to improve the overall affordability of homes constructed with insulating concrete forms. The first edition also served as the source document for building code provisions in the International Residential Code (IRC).
The second edition expands on the first edition by adding provisions for Seismic Design Categories C and D (Seismic Zones 3 and 4). Wall construction requirements utilizing Grade 60 reinforcing steel and concrete mixes with selected compressive strengths are included. In addition, tables throughout the document have been simplified as a result of additional evaluation and user input.
