“Investing in Technology for Safety, Energy & Water Efficiency”
May 22, 2017

“That cranky building inspector says I have to use this type of construction material instead of the bargain-basement stuff that’s on sale at the Big Box store. Who is he to say that?”

If the building official is using one or more of the International Code Council’s family of codes, also known as the International Codes, he isn’t just pulling those requirements out of thin air. He is basing the decision on the expertise of thousands of ICC members and partners who contribute to developing minimum standards designed for safe and sustainable construction.

“Investing in Technology for Safety, Energy & Water Efficiency” is the theme for the International Code Council’s Building Safety Month Week Four, May 22-28, 2017.

Since it was founded by the ICC in 1980, Building Safety Month has been an annual public safety awareness campaign to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create safe and sustainable structures.

ICC members and partners include scientists who are leading the way in designing and constructing safe, efficient, and resilient homes and buildings. Up-to-date building safety codes and standards enable the technology to be incorporated into buildings while ensuring the safety of lives, properties and investments.

Whether you’re considering renovating, remodeling, or building from the ground up, look for the latest in technology, and make sure it is based on the codes and standards that put safety and efficiency first.

The permit from your qualified inspector protects you and the public by reducing the potential hazards of unsafe construction and ensuring public health, safety and welfare.
