The International Code Council (ICC) and Pennsylvania Builders Association (PBA) have collaborated to publish the 2015 Changes to the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code. This new code resource addresses the needs of home builders, designers and code officials by highlighting and explaining the current updates to the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC).
“This new publication includes adopted code changes from 2015 with details on how the new codes affect the current UCC,” said Frank Thompson, 2009–2014 Chairman of the UCC Review and Advisory Council and 1992 PBA President. “It contains numerous diagrams, photographs and explanations to help industry professionals understand and apply code changes. I urge every builder to keep this critical supplement with their current code books.”
The first resource of its kind, the handbook compiles all of the 2015 UCC updates in an easy-to-follow format identifying code section, title, type of change, change summary and change analysis. New code text is shown in underline/strikethrough format for immediate recognition of the change. Additional analysis, illustrations, tables and photos help enhance reader understanding. This user-friendly resource includes UCC changes to the Building, Residential, Energy, Existing Building, Fire and Mechanical Codes, making it an ideal tool for all building community professionals.
