    AIA Honolulu Programs

    Jan 10: IMPORTANT! State Building Code Review & Discussion Participants Needed

    RSVP Online!  These meetings are open to anyone interested in participating in the code review.

    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 time frame.

    When/Where: Wednesday, January 10, 11:30am-1pm, Center of Architecture. 

    Can't attend in person? You can participate via GoToMeeting. Just choose that option during online registration and we will send you further information before the meeting.

    Jan 12:  Land Use Ordinance (LUO) Task Force, 12pm

    Join the AIA LUO Task Force as we review our city’s land use ordinance (LUO). We invite all interested members to engage in the unique opportunity to take a look at Honolulu’s current zoning code and give feedback to the city for their upcoming revisions to the LUO.

    This is a chance for us as design professionals and AIA members to have an impact on the very codes that regulate our work and define the future fabric of our city. We will be meeting regularly either weekly or twice a month at the Center for Architecture. View Meeting Flyer.

    When/Where: Friday, January 12, 12:00pm, Center for Architecture.

    We will kick off by reviewing the residential portion of the zoning code. There will be multiple meetings on each code section, so if you cannot make it to the first meeting, you will have other opportunities to contribute. We are also looking for volunteers to join our leadership team. As a member of the leadership team, you will be taking on an administrative role and not expected to be an expert on zoning or land use. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the AIA and impact our design community.
