International Green Construction Code (IgCC) 2012 now available
June 7, 2012 - The new 2012 International Green Construction Code (IgCC) will increase the energy-efficiency of structures, while providing governments direction and oversight of green design and construction, according to the International Code Council (ICC) the code's author. The 2012 IgCC offers a new code baseline that can be tailored by governments to share "many of the benefits of green buildings with the millions of buildings that are designed, constructed and renovated to meet minimum code, whether or not they are engaged in the LEED [Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design] program", explained ICC. The 2012 code was authored by ICC in partnership with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), ASTM international (ASTM), ASHRAE, the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES), and U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
