Thread: Progressive building codes for existing buildings

    Progressive building codes for existing buildings

    Can anyone point me to a municipality that is using some progressive building codes for older buildings?

    Maybe a department that uses the IEBC (International Existing Building Codes) or has adopted some codes that make it easier for infill development to occur with existing buildings?

    Thank you.

    I don't have a link, but check out New Jersey's codes -- I understand they are quite progressive with regard to existing and especially historic buildings.

    The California Building Code has a very well thought out "historical code" that alleviates a lot of the requirements, however the building must be deemed historical through national registry/state registry or local ordinance.
