Update on the Latest Editions of Two Sections of the Mandated Energy Code
Wednesday, October 17, 2018
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has finally approved the adoption of the entire suite of 2015 International Building Codes (IBCs) for Residential and Non-Residential building projects statewide. This change will take effect on October 1, 2018. The 2015 IBCs reference the 2013 Standard 90.1 and the 2014 NEC (National Electric Code). However, more recently, the City of Philadelphia has approved the adoption of a very slightly amended version of the entire suite of 2018 IBCs, only for Commercial, Industrial, Institutional, and Multi-Family (Apartments & Condominiums) building projects. The 2018 IBCs reference the 2016 Standard 90.1 and the 2017 NEC. Conversely, Single-Family, Two-Family, and Townhouse Residential building projects in Philadelphia will remain in-step with the State; and therefore, they will need to be designed to meet the 2015 IBCs. Both of these new citywide building code changes for Philadelphia will also take effect on October 1, 2018.
Reasons to Attend: These extensively revised code provisions, which are much more comprehensive than in the past, affect virtually all new building projects, as well as most renovation projects for existing buildings, throughout PA, NJ, DE and beyond, within the Mid-Atlantic region. You cannot afford to neglect this unparalleled opportunity to enhance dramatically your knowledge about the newer and more stringent electrical and lighting requirements of the recently updated energy code, which has been mandated by these two governmental entities. It is noteworthy that the State of New Jersey is already enforcing newer versions of Standard 90.1, exclusively
