2018 Code Changes Demystified

The 9th edition of the Mass Code took effect January 1, 2018. You’ve heard the buzz words: IBC, IRC, and IECC - Stretch Code - Performance path vs. Prescriptive path. Etc. What does any of that actually mean!? 

ü How do these changes affect the next permit you pull?

ü What changes have been implemented in the Stretch Code Towns?

üDo we still need hurricane protection?

ü What is the code official going to be looking for at your next framing inspection? 


The Martha’s Vineyard Builder’s Association invites you to an evening with HERS Rater, Chris Mazzola from Home Energy Raters and West Tisbury Building Inspector, Joe Tierney who will answer all of these questions and more in a panel presentation and discussion moderated by John Abrams!  

Where: Harbor View Hotel, Edgartown

When: January 25, 2018,  5:00pm (registration opens at 4:30)

Who Should Attend:  Builders, Architects, Subcontractors, Realtors, Bankers, Insurers, etc.
