2018 Building Code Updates

#FFFFFF

Building codes govern the design, construction, remodel, and maintenance of all structures and are necessary to set the minimum requirements that help safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of all building occupants.

In most recent years, building codes have expanded to consider alternative building methods, as well as enhancing elements of sustainability, such as energy and risk reduction through design and material choices. Because of this, adopting a more recent code will further the Town's sustainability and resilience goals.

The Town of Nederland adopted the 2018 IBC/IRC Building Code standards with 2020 NEC as of January 1st, 2022.
