Changes to building code update cycle

Just want to make sure some of you folks are aware of how the code update cycle is changing – see blog post - Changes to building code update cycle
The example in the blog post focuses on how the new 6-3 code cycle will work for the residential code (including chapt 13, Energy Conservation) update, but Here’s how it will work for the energy code (for commercial structures):
  • 2014 Oregon Energy Efficiency Specialty Code (OEESC), which will be come effective July 1, 2014, is considered a 3-year interim code amendment.
  • 2017 OEESC update will be based on national model code.
Cheers, -Gabrielle
