  5. 5. The Evolution of a Single Model Building Code for the United States The AIA Center for Building Performance and Regulations
  6. 6. History • Building codes in the United States developed over many years in response to the desire to protect life and property from fire, wind, earthquake, and other forces. • In the 19th and 20th centuries, the insurance industry played a large role in pressuring governments to regulate the occupancy and use of buildings in order to protect against loss. • Key events marked major changes to the codes, notably: o 1903 Iroquois Theater fire in Chicago, which claimed 602 lives o 1942 fire at Cocoanut Grove Nightclub in Boston, which claimed 492 lives. Both tragedies brought new code requirements across the country.
  7. 7. • During the first half of the 20th century, urbanized US jurisdictions tended to develop their own building codes, resulting in literally thousands of different versions. • The formation of model building codes (by BOCA, ICBO, SBCCI, and CABO) allowed municipalities to adopt standard texts in order to regulate construction. • These diverse set of building regulations needed to be organized in a more coherent fashion so architects and design professionals could avoid the undue burden of learning and staying current with many different codes. History
  8. 8. Use of Model Building Codes in the United States – circa 2000
  9. 9. Current Adoption of ICC I-Codes N.I.C.
  10. 10. 1975 Past Milestones Towards This Goal The American Institute of Architects (AlA) issues a white paper, "One Code: A Program for Building Regulatory Reform." This paper placed the AlA on record for the first time as recognizing the problem of a myriad number of building codes throughout the country that the practicing architect faced when involved in projects around the country. The paper attempted to develop a structure of code authorities that would formulate and administer the same code throughout the U.S.
  11. 11. 1983 - 1984 Past Milestones Towards This Goal The AlA sponsors a "One Code Forum" held at its Washington, D.C., headquarters. A number of interested parties from the design, building code administrators, and federal government communities are involved, all giving their opinions and feelings regarding this issue. The AlA Codes and Standards Committee issues a white paper, "A New Program for Building Regulatory Reform." Among the major conclusions of this paper is to "support the concept of a Common Code Format (CCF) as a basic technical reference."
  12. 12. 1991 - 1992 Past Milestones Towards This Goal The three major model building codes (BOCA, ICBO, and SBCCI) all pass resolutions at their annual conventions endorsing the concept of the CCF. This action appears to have been brought on by the progress of the European Common Market and Community and the fear that the federal government may step in to initiate a single building code in an effort to maintain competitiveness in the world market.
  13. 13. 1992 Past Milestones Towards This Goal The Council of American Building Officials (CABO) authorizes the Board for the Coordination of Model Building Codes (BCMC) to form an ad hoc committee to investigate and report back to the Board in 1993 on the feasibility and desirability of developing a common code format. This committee consists of the representatives of the three major model building codes and representatives from the architectural and fire protection engineering design communities.
  14. 14. Common Code Format Chicago Building Code: International Building Code: from American Legal website
  15. 15. Common Code Format (continued) Chicago Building Code: International Building Code:
  16. 16. BOCA becomes the first of the major model building codes to approve, authorize, and publish its next major edition of the building code in the committee- recommended format. ICBO (Uniform Building Code) and SBCCI (Standard Building Code) publish their codes in the common code format. The ICC (International Code Council) is formed with representatives from the three major model building codes, having as its main goal the eventual unification of the three codes into a single document. 1993 - 1994 Past Milestones Towards This Goal
  17. 17. 1996 Past Milestones Towards This Goal The ICC meets its first legal challenge when an appellate court reverses an injunction given to the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), which was contesting the issuance of the new International Plumbing Code. The ICC follows with a new mechanical code, the International Mechanical Code, which is adopted and endorsed by the three major model code agencies as the only authoritative mechanical code in the areas where the model codes are being used.
  18. 18. 1997 - 2000 Past Milestones Towards This Goal A SINGLE BUILDING CODE FOR THE UNITED STATES.
  19. 19. 2015 AIA and ICC Five-Year Collaborative Agreement • “Our combined membership, consisting of practicing design professionals, code officials, and the building industry representatives, supports the development of codes and standards that protect the health, safety and welfare of the public at large,” said AIA CEO Robert Ivy, FAIA. • “Through this significant agreement, both the AIA and the ICC agree to work more closely to achieve our common goals.”
  20. 20. Common Objectives under the Five-Year AIA-ICC MOU: • Model Code Development • Education and Training • Advocacy • Engaging member groups • Digital Transformation
  21. 21. Model Code Development AIA and ICC will form partnerships to cooperate in the development of the family of I-Codes and supporting resources that are user- friendly and align with the design and construction processes used by the industry today and in the future.
  22. 22. Education and Training The AlA and ICC will develop and provide access to educational courses and, working with industry partners, the AlA and ICC will promote a renewed focus in the professional schools of architecture, and in the Architect Registration Exam (ARE), dedicated to building code knowledge furthering compliance.
  23. 23. Advocacy The AlA and ICC will establish joint activities to develop and initiate advocacy campaigns for important issues relevant to architects and code officials.
  24. 24. Engaging Member Groups ICC and the A/A will provide opportunities to cross-pollinate internal member committees and working groups.
  25. 25. Digital Transformation The AlA and ICC will provide resources that support information and technology initiatives focusing on the interface between architects and the Codes, code officials and other industry professionals in the design and construction process, to support ICC CPD access and the AlA Digital Transformation strategic initiative.
  26. 26. Questions?
  27. 27. The Argument for Adoption of the International Building Code in Chicago
  28. 28. Background • The Chicago Building Code in its present form is extremely outdated. • Most of the life safety chapters have not seen a major revision since the revised Building Ordinance passed the City Council on December 30, 1949. • Updating the CBC was started in 1998, including the following chapters: – Electrical, Plumbing, Mechanical – Elevator, Natural Light and Ventilation – Accessibility and Energy were also part of the process
  29. 29. Background • 2004: – Draft of updated chapters published in the Council Journal – Workshops presenting the new code conducted – Process abruptly stopped. • 2010 - 2011: – Efforts to continue the process – No introduction or adoption of a fully revised and updated code. • Incomplete effort has led to inconsistency within the code text and references as the various chapters interrelate to each other.
  30. 30. Background • Virtually all major cities in the United States have adopted some form of the model International Codes as published by the International Code Council (ICC), including New York City, which overhauled their code from 1968 and became effective in 2006. • Model building codes are regularly updated on a three-year cycle, making them predictable as to when to expect changes.
  31. 31. Background • Chicago should adopt the ICC’s International Building Code (IBC) and, as part of this process, develop a mechanism to keep current with these code updates by establishing a working group or standing committee to review changes and develop a systemized approach to keeping the code current. • The following are reasons why the City of Chicago should act now to begin the adoption the IBC model:
  32. 32. 1. Adoption of the IBC would allow Chicago’s building code to keep pace with technological advances in the design and construction of residential, commercial and institutional buildings.
  33. 33. 1. Keep Pace with Technological Advances • Commonplace building materials and systems, such as structural glazing for canopies, skylights, glass floors, handrails and guards, as well as window sprinklers that achieve a recognized fire-resistance rating, are constantly being submitted to Chicago’s Building Committee on Standards and Tests because they are not recognized in the Chicago code. • These omissions could be easily rectified with a code rewrite, saving owners from the considerable time and effort to apply and present to the Committee.
  34. 34. 2. Adoption of the IBC would bring Chicago’s building codes in line with the rest of the nation and will attract a broader array of developers, design professionals and ultimately businesses to the City.
  35. 35. • Fifty states and the District of Columbia have adopted the IBC. • Federal agencies, including: – the Architect of the Capitol, – General Services Administration, – National Park Service, – Department of State, – U.S. Forest Service and – the Veterans Administration enforce the IBC and the Department of Defense references the IBC for constructing military facilities, including those that house U.S. troops, domestically and abroad. 2. Alignment will attract developers and businesses to the City.
  36. 36. 3. Adoption of the IBC would reduce the ability of special interests to push building codes simply to enhance their position rather than to enhance public safety.
  37. 37. • The International Code Council, which develops the IBC, is monitored by numerous national building related organizations, including – BOMA International, – National Apartment Association, – American Institute of Architects, – National Multi-Family Housing Council Proposed changes go through an exhaustive deliberative process before being adopted. 3. Reduce the ability of special interests to enhance their position rather than public safety.
  38. 38. 4. Adoption of the IBC would reduce the cost of developing residential, commercial and institutional buildings.
  39. 39. • Developers and design professionals currently find it necessary to spend time, money and resources trying to understand the many nuances that exist in Chicago’s current building code. Examples include: – Glass and aluminum as structural elements – Window sprinklers to achieve a fire rating – Fire vestibules in 4-hr fire walls – Outdated standards references – Outdated exit width factors (units of exit width) 4. Reduce the cost of developing new buildings.
  40. 40. 5. Adoption of the IBC would reduce the time needed to secure a building permit.
  41. 41. • Developers and design professionals would have to spend less time correcting drawings to comply with the many nuances that exist in Chicago’s current building code. • Interpretation by code officials and plan examiners are made more difficult by antiquated provisions and disparity between old and new chapters. • As a result, practitioners are often confused by the responses they receive to address plan review comments. 5. Reduce the time needed to secure a building permit.
  42. 42. 6. Adoption of the IBC would provide building owners, developers, design professionals one set of codes without regional limitations or jurisdictional conflicts.
  43. 43. • State versus local requirements continue to be an issue under the existing code, whether they involve plumbing fixture quantities, mandatory installation of sprinklers, elevator inspection or accessibility. – Illinois Accessibility Code – Illinois Plumbing Code – Illinois Energy Conservation Code 6. Reduce regional limitations or jurisdictional conflicts.
  44. 44. 7. Having an updated code would strengthen the City’s “home rule” position regarding aspects of the code that are adapted to meet Chicago- specific circumstances.
  45. 45. • Chicago cannot simply adopt the model codes outright, but must also adapt the model code to meet the many unique characteristics of the City’s existing building stock, as well as modify provisions that would otherwise cause undue hardship to building owners and tenants. • This is much easier to accomplish within the parameters of an updated code. 7. Adapted to meet Chicago- specific circumstances.
  46. 46. 8. Education and training of building code officials and plan examiners could easily be facilitated by bringing the code into compliance with a model code.
  47. 47. • The ICC has unmatched technical, educational and informational products and services, with more than 250 highly qualified staff members at 16 offices in the United States and Latin America. • ICC already supplies a series of programs, study materials, and examinations for certification in many relevant categories. This would help maintain consistency with regard to plan examination and interpretation, which the process is now lacking. 8. Education and training
  48. 48. 9. Having a modern code that is regularly reviewed and updated will benefit Chicago insurance consumers.
  49. 49. • The Insurance Services Office, INC. (ISO) is an insurer-supported organization with the primary mission of providing advisory insurance underwriting and rate information to insurers. • Among the factors considered when the ISO determines a rating for a community are: the building-code edition in use; the modification of the codes; training and certification of code enforcers and other items directly related to the code. 9. Benefits Chicago insurance consumers.
  50. 50. 10. Chicago has been talking about conforming to the IBC for more than 25 years - It’s time to stop talking and DO it.
  51. 51. • The time and cost of implementing a revision to the Chicago Building Code, that is substantially in line with the IBC, would be more than offset by the benefits to the citizens of the City, developers and owners, and to the design and construction industry, by allowing for a level playing field to build and renovate both housing and commercial structures in keeping with the most current nationally recognized codes and standards. • Further delays continue to isolate Chicago in the marketplace. 10.It’s time to stop talking and DO it.
  52. 52. Adopting, and transitioning, to a model code in Chicago will take some time and can be a difficult process. While working towards such adoption, BOMA/Chicago will continue to foster a deliberative, cost effective regulatory environment wherever and whenever possible. Conclusion
  53. 53. Questions?
  54. 54. If Cars Were Like Codes … …Which One Would You Drive?
  55. 55. Remembering Politics in Chicago • Of all the colorful characters in Chicago’s political history, few were as flamboyant or as outspoken as Mathias “Paddy” Bauler, the saloonkeeper who controlled the 43d Ward from 1933 to 1967. • He made history as the man who, after winning a bitterly fought election in 1939 against an opponent who had run on a reform platform, uttered the immortal line: “Chicago ain’t ready for reform” Today’s Question - Why is Chicago Not Yet Ready for Building Code Reform?
