The 2018 Pennsylvania Alternative Residential Energy Provisions (PA-Alt) document is an alternative to chapter 11 of the International Residential Code (IRC). It is intended to supplement the IRC, and to the extent possible, to be consistent in format and general intent. The scope and definitions used in the IRC apply. It is important to note that a choice needs to be made by the builder or design professional between the 2018 PA-Alt, the 2015 IRC, and the 2015 IECC in Pennsylvania.

Description:

The intent of this document is to provide prescriptive foundation systems for relocating manufactured houses. These houses are typically lacking the manufacturers’ installation instructions that include their approved foundation systems. This document presents several economical permanent alternative foundation systems that can be used and reused in both private land and in park settings. These foundation systems were developed to be consistent with the performance requirements of the International Residential Code and to be acceptable throughout Pennsylvania.
