A Note form the AIA State Government Network Representative:
(May 13, 2009)
The ICC is forming a new committee entitled the Sustainable Building Technology Committee (SBTC). The SBTC was originally tasked with the improvement of ICC Codes, Standards and Guidelines in the areas of sustainability and high performance. This includes areas of water, energy and mechanical efficiency, as well as new and renewable energy sources such as solar, hydrogen fuel cells and other systems. On May 4th the ICC voted to develop a Green Building Code. The SBTC will develop the first draft. There will be 4 – 5 SBTC meetings, each three days in length, between July/2009 – Jan/2010. Work Groups may also hold meetings as part of the drafting process. Meetings via web-conferencing are also anticipated.
Sustainable Building Technology Committee members are appointed by the ICC Board of Directors. Travel required and paid for by ICC. Click here for an application. or contact Mike Pfeiffer, 1-888-ICC-SAFE (422-7233), ext. 4338. Application deadline: June 1, 2009
