Codes & Standards Discussion Forum 

Welcome to the ICC Codes & Standards Discussion Forum

The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.

The 2006 IBC should be in your local Library by now, if your Company doesn''t have a copy, and the definitions are included. Any of the Jurisdictions Building Permit/Building Safety Review and Inspections Departments that are in your Companies Demographics range can assist you in your request, also.

If you get a chance to review new products that might assist in energy efficiency programs, check out the TOR-EGGS-TOR DESIGN SOLUTIONS with CLOSED-NETS Website, and see if any or some of the new design methods can be beneficial to energy programs that you and your Company are involved with.

Have a BlessedDay and Beyond, Randy, Family, and Associates.

Yeah, I have to agree with jboren.

You have to wonder what kind of "company that administers energy efficiency programs for utilities" is too cheap to buy a copy of the code...

It''s not too late to edit you post, BB. ;)

at least they''re working on making it free, makes no sense why you have to pay to know the rules they want you to abide by

My apologies bob.

But my opinion remains the same, a company that is going to work in a code related field, and needs code related information, should pop for a code book for the office, a commentary also wouldn''t be a bad idea. JMHO

But now scrolling back to the OP, I see it''s been edited, and the reference to a company is gone, now it''s a "paper". Hmmmm

That pretty much shoots amorrison96''s credibility to pieces, huh? :rolleyes:

[QUOTE]makes no sense why you have to pay to know the rules they want you to abide by [/QUOTE]Actually it makes perfect sense. You don''t think that the codes just write, review, revise, and publish themselves, do you?

If you were a mechanic would you expect to be given all of your tools for free? ;)

fatboy...no apologies required.......We all learn from each other. We don''t always agree on everything, but the board does give us an opportunity to have a multi-facet look at an issue.
