Codes and Standards

last person joined: 9 days ago 
Building codes and standards affect every aspect of professional practice, acting as the minimum standard of care that AIA members must meet as licensed professionals. As the AIA engages in the codes and standards development process with ICC and other organizations, this community portal will serve as the gathering place and clearinghouse for codes related activities and discussions.
