AIAU: US State and Local Codes

April 29, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

North Carolina Architects
*1 HSW*


Codes and standards are developed scientifically and support the needs of our society extremely well. But because we have such a large country, local variations make the codes complex and difficult to digest, understand, and comply. As architects, we are responsible for satisfying society’s demands for buildings that are safe, secure, healthy, energy efficient, accessible, functional, sustainable, and high-performance, all while complying with enforced codes and standards. This session will explore the challenges architects face with codes and standards while navigating solutions, offering best practices, and providing strategies for managing compliance.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand why codes and standards are different in different states and localities in the US.
  • Expand current knowledge and review updates of applicable building codes and standards in US.
  • Understand best practices and guidelines on code compliance and creating safe buildings.
  • How to tackle compliance challenges
