What's New...

Building industry groups have been meeting for several months in Boise to work out code adoption issues for 2013. On the table under discussion are the 2012 IBC, IRC, IECC and existing Building codes. To date, it appears that their recommendation is to adopt the 2012 IBC and Existing Building Code, and to look at possible amendments to the IRC and IECC to make them less onerous. Please see the attachments for a progress report and analysis.
