In this training, in an effort to protect the health, safety and welfare of building occupants, workers and the public, participants in this course will learn about significant changes in the 2022 Building Code with respect to updated requirements in the geotechnical provisions. Participants will analyze new provisions for soils and foundations including geotechnical peer review. Participants will also examine new design requirements for support of adjacent buildings during excavation including underpinning and alternative methods of support.
