The building construction codes are updated every three years. Learn how the changes are created nationally and are adopted locally with an overview of the State and Local adoption process of the International Building Code (IBC) and the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The focus will be on what has been deleted, added, or modified, and how these changes affect new or existing building projects. Whether you are a general contractor, licensed tradesperson, or a product vendor, you need to be aware of these changes and when to expect them. After this webinar you will have a better knowledge of how to apply the code changes, recognize potential documentation needs, understand code change rationale and be able to apply the change with confidence.
