Maryland: International Green Construction Code

Will Maryland be first to pass the International Green Construction Code?

March 10, 2011 - A bill sponsored in Maryland by seven separate delegates proposes that Maryland adopt version two of the International Green Construction Code in its entirety. As reported by my good friend Stuart Kaplow, this version of IGCC incorporates the upcoming Standard 189.1 for High Performance Buildings currently being developed by the American Society of Heating Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

Rhode Island adopted IGCC for public buildings in 2010 as an alternative path to compliance with green building requirements. If HB 972 passes, it appears Maryland will be the first state to adopt IGCC for all construction. {continued}
