On behalf of AIA NJ, I attended the NJ Uniform Construction Code Advisory Board Meeting last Friday. John Terry reported that Governor Christie signed the legislation to adopt the 2015 ICC series of codes with the amendments recommended by DCA. The proposed amendments are expected to be published in the NJ Register on January 5, 2015.
As you may be aware there is a 60 day public comment period after which some revisions are likely before the law is formally adopted. DCA estimates adoption in June or July 2015. Considering the 6 month grace period (the time in which the design professional can choose to use either code) the 2015 ICC codes should become mandatory about a year from now.
AIA NJ is planning on hosting seminars on the updates to the IBC prior to adoption next year. Stay tuned . . .
