Building Safety Month 2019
Posted by Christopher E. Chwedyk, CSI, AIA
Who Needs Building Codes?
Building Codes are necessary for all communities to protect their residents from any disaster like fires, weather related events and structural collapse that follows deterioration over time of all building types.
Building Safety Month is presented by the International Code Council (ICC), who are dedicated to helping the building safety community and construction industry provide safe, sustainable and resilient construction through the development of codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process. Most U.S. communities and many global markets choose the International Codes.
Throughout the month of May, we will be sharing educational resources provided by the ICC to promote buildings safety divided into five weeks.
