International Code Council Taking Applications for Tall Wooden Buildings Panel

The committee will investigate the feasibility of, and take action on, developing code changes for tall wood buildings, and its work will continue through the 2018/2019/2020 cycle.

Feb. 5 is the deadline to apply to be a member of the International Code Council's ad hoc committee to explore the building science of tall wood buildings. The ICC Board of Directors established it last month, and it will include a balance of stakeholders with additional opportunities for interested parties to participate in work groups.

The committee will investigate the feasibility of, and take action on, developing code changes for tall wood buildings, and its work will continue through the 2018/2019/2020 cycle. The necessary balance of stakeholders includes:

  • Representatives from building construction material industries
  • Building and fire officials
  • Architects and engineers
  • Fire protection experts
  • Other construction-related stakeholders

ICC expects the committee will hold two to four two-day meetings per year. Contact Mike Pfeiffer (888-ICC-SAFE, ext. 4338, mpfeiffer@iccsafe.org) to apply.

ICC also announced that its theme for 2016 Building Safety Month this May is "Building Codes: Driving Growth through Innovation, Resilience and Safety."

"For the last 36 years, Building Safety Month has celebrated advances in constructing safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient structures," said ICC Board of Directors President Alex Olszowy, III, with the Lexington Fayette Urban County Government in Lexington, Ky. "Building to modern codes and standards provides important safety and economic benefits to communities, their businesses, schools, churches, and homes, and the people who occupy them."
