Participants Needed! 

Due to legislative changes in the 2017 session, the State Building Code Council (SBCC) has been given authority to adopt building codes which do not require the Governor's approval for public hearings nor his signature on the bill enacting the updated codes.  For this reason, the SBCC is still following the 2006 International Building Code/International Residential Code (IBC/IRC)

The Legislature recently mandated that the SBCC adopt the newest IBC/IRC codes within 2 years from the date of publication. 

The 2018 IBC/IRC codes were published in November, 2017. The SBCC estimates the procedure to adopt the new codes will take approximately 18 months. Given that timeline, as well as the 2018 code publishing date, we now have only 3-4 months for the AIA Codes Committee to review and recommend changes appropriate for Hawaii.

The AIA Codes Committee will be meeting at least bi-weekly to review and discuss the 2018 codes in order to make appropriate recommendations within the 3-4 month timeframe. 

Our first meeting will be on Wednesday, January 10, 11:30am – 1pm at the AIA Honolulu Center of Architecture.  These meetings are open to anyone interested in participating in the code review. 

Those unable to attend in person may also participate electronically via GoToMeeting.  If you would like to participate remotely, please Register Here so that we may send you the remote meeting attendance link.  

AIA CES credit:  Attendees will receive 1.5 LU/HSW.
