“Advancing Resilient Communities through Science and Technology”
May 11, 2018

Science and technology are leading the way for designing and constructing safe, efficient and resilient homes and buildings. Up-to-date building safety codes and standards enable technology to be incorporated into buildings while ensuring safety for lives, properties and investments. The International Code Council joins its 64,000 members and professionals from the building construction, design and safety communities to highlight the importance of “Advancing Resilient Communities through Science and Technology” during week 2 of the 38th annual Building Safety Month.

This week continues the month-long, international campaign to highlight the importance of building safety, building codes and the officials who maintain them. Building departments and communities around the world are hosting their own celebrations to bring attention to how codes affect our daily lives. Find out more about the events in your area. Also this week, the Code Council partnered with WAMU, the Washington, DC, NPR affiliate, to promote Building Safety Month – tune in online or on your radio.

The Code Council develops a number of codes and standards, including mechanical, plumbing, structural, resilience, accessibility and green standards, and is accredited by the American National Standards Institute as a standards developer.
