MBAKS Remodelers Council Dinner

Building Codes: Purpose, Process, and People

This discussion uncovers how the code works and the people involved. It begins with some fun history leading up to the current International Codes and follows with an enlightening explanation of how the code is developed and adopted into law. Before applying the provisions, we must lay the foundation of how to navigate the code and how the code is administered as a minimum standard.

Learn about basement building codes from Glenn this same day from 2–5 p.m. Finishing a basement requires nearly all the trades and construction required for a new house, short of foundations and roofs. However, many applications are unique when transforming the former guts below a home into finished living space. Building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel-gas and electrical provisions involved with these projects will be reviewed in detail. Learn more about the Building Codes for Basement Finish class.
