ICC Final Action Hearings Set for Dallas in May
March 4, 2010

Building safety advocates will consider several hundred code changes during the International Code Council (ICC) Final Action Hearings, May 14th to 23rd in Dallas. The Group A Final Action Hearings will include all sections of the International Building, Fire, Plumbing, Mechanical, Fuel Gas, Wildland-Urban Interface and Existing Building codes, and the building, mechanical and plumbing sections of the International Residential Code.

The Dallas hearings also feature two educational tours on May 13th to learn about local architecture and code-related challenges. One tour visits a LEED Gold home with innovative building materials, including cast-in-place, board-form concrete, red-painted hardy plank and foam insulation. The residence features an underground cistern, natural light, and high-performing windows to capture and move air through the home to reduce cooling costs. A second tour explores a power station built in the 1920s that is being converted to a single-family residence.
