industry influence on energy codes.
Apr 20, 2021
Nick Holbus, construction specialist at modus studio, recently penned an opinion piece about industry influence on energy codes for SIGA's blog.
"By the ICC subtly tilting the inputs in favor of the home-building (and gas) industries, it reduces the egalitarian feedback from non-industry parties (municipalities, school districts, utilities, designers). It makes the code evolution process less well-rounded and less capable of serving the marginalized, lower-income segments of the population who are ultimately affected by code minimums."
