The IgCC is Available
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) announced its support for the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), a model code from the The International Code Council (ICC) aimed at helping conserve energy in both commercial buildings and residential structures while providing direction for safe and sustainable building design and construction.
“The IgCC is a tool that, when adopted nationwide by states and communities, will create a path for the United States to follow in cutting energy use in one of its biggest energy consumers – commercial buildings,” said AIA President Jeff Potter, FAIA. “Now that the IgCC is final, American architects can use the Green Code to help the U.S. lead the way in designing sustainable buildings and infrastructure.”
