2018 Code Hearings Wrap Up

Dec 6, 2016 3:00 PM ET

In this webinar, Maureen Guttman, President of the Building Codes Assistant Project (BCAP) will provide an essential overview of the most recent code hearings that will determine 2018 codes.  Guttman will offer information about:

  • The run-up to the hearings, including some of the outreach efforts to increase voting on pro-energy efficiency proposals
  • Proposals accepted and proposals defeated, along with a WAG on approximate impact on level of stringency compared to previous codes
  • How to build on the great outreach that’s been done to get the 2018 codes adopted (assuming there aren’t substantial roll-backs)
  • Ongoing opportunities for training on the current codes
