International Code Council Releases New IGCC Public Version 2.0

11/22/2010 - The International Code Council unveiled its latest edition of the International Green Construction Code (IGCC), known as IGCC Public Version 2.0, at the annual U.S. Green Building Council's "Greenbuild" conference. Cooperating sponsors of the IGCC are the American Institute of Architects, ASTM International, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), the U.S. Green Building Council (USG! BC) and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES).

At the Greenbuild announcement Code Council Chief Executive Officer Richard P. Weiland said, "IGCC Version 2.0 is provided as a resource tool for jurisdictions considering adoption or amendment of regulations regarding green construction, and is available as a free download on the Code Council's website. Public Version 2.0 reflects the work of the IGCC Public Hearings Committee, which conducted a review of 1,500 comments and nearly 120 hours of testimony during eight days of public hearings in Chicago last August." {read rest}
