The International Green Construction Code - How Does This Affect You?
This course reviews the 2012 International Green Construction Code (IGCC) developed by the International Code Council (ICC). IGCC was developed to set a new standard for new and existing buildings seeking to reduce their environmental footprint. There are two characteristics that make the IGCC unique. First, it offers voluntary adoption by state and local jurisdictions. Second, it is flexible and adaptable, and represents the first model code that incorporates sustainability strategies for projects from design through post-occupancy. There are several levels of compliance, as well as project electives which are adopted when jurisdictions require higher performance. In this course, there is a discussion of the IGCC development process, the relationship of IGCC to other recognized codes and standards. We will also look at the standard itself, what areas of sustainability are considered, compliance levels and criteria, and examples of compliant projects.
This course is worth 2 GBCI and AIA-approved CE hours, and will be broadcast live February 27, 2013 at 2PM EST. The on demand version will be available beginning March 1.
