Good News On Sprinklers
Special Note on Building Codes
R.4321 – International Residential Building Code
(Note: This is not a bill, but a regulation that will be promulgated).
This week, the 2012 I-Codes were approved on second reading by the Senate. As submitted by LLR, the regulation includes numerous modifications as well as the removal of the mandate for residential fire sprinklers. Thanks to our HBASC Building Codes Committee and its Chairman, Andy Barber, the HBASC was able to make several modifications to the 2012 I-Codes. Sen. Shane Massey (R-Aiken) deserves a great deal of credit for safeguarding the rights of homeowners across the state and defending affordable housing for its citizens.
Thanks to Mark and Matt for staying on top of this!
