AIA Works to Prepare Members on Changes in Practice
The 2012 International Green Construction Code (IgCC), a new model code that is focused on addressing green building design and performance in both existing buildings and in new construction, will be published in March 2012. The AIA is working to prepare members and AIA components for the changes in practice that will come about as a result of possible code adoption. There are many changes likely to appear in the final code. Click Here, to view a sample of some of the design and practice issues that AIA is currently examining in the new model code.
