ICC TALL WOOD BUILDING CODES PASSED!
All 14 Code Proposals passed by wide margins from 69% to 94% after the Online Voting process was verified by the ICC in late January, 2019. These wide margins indicated that the broader code community had indeed vetted the thorough and impactful process that the ICC TWB Code Committee had established between 2016 and 2018. Significantly, the success of the five full-scale Fire Tests performed at the Bureau of Alcohol and Firearms outside of Washington D.C. in the summer of 2017 proved to be a key turning point for the ICC Committee’s deliberations. Susan Jones, FAIA was appointed by the National American Institute of Architects to represent over 90,000 architects on the two and a half year committee process. She served pro-bono.
