BUILDING CODES

BOMA Defends Positions During ICC Public Comment Hearings

Key members of BOMA International’s Building Codes Committee, including committee vice chair and president of BOMA/Tulsa Susan Walker, traveled to Las Vegas for the second round of hearings that will complete the 2021 International Code Council (ICC) code development cycle. Along with Susan, BOMA’s codes consultants John Catlett and Andrew Klein and Vice President of Advocacy & Building Codes John Bryant will be defending positions and making recommendations related to changes made to the International Existing Building Code, International Building Code Administration and Structural provisions, and the International Energy Conservation Code. Most of our concerns revolve around advanced energy efficiency proposals with high-cost implications and long-term paybacks. Testimony began last Wednesday and will be wrapping up this week. You can catch the hearings live at iccsafe.org/content/webcast-hearings.
