Building Codes Community Development

This space is dedicated to providing clarification and guidance on interpreting some of the more complex code-related issues, particularly those that we find are often misunderstood. New items will be added regularly, so be sure to check back from time to time.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you need more information.
