City of Aspen Staff Participation with the International Code Council
Stephen Kanipe will be attending the International Code Council’s (ICC) Sustainability Membership Council (SMC) Spring meeting in Albuquerque on April 27thand 28th.

The SMC advocates and promotes sustainability through the development of the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), the National Green Building Standard (ICC 700) and the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). Much of the meeting is devoted to preparating for the ICC Annual Business meeting in the Fall of 2019.

Nick was instrumental in developing an Aspen-sponsored code change to simplify residential energy compliance and will testify in support of the measure. Aspen will be well represented by Nick and the Colorado Chapter of Building Officials during the hearings.
