A New Way to Monitor Building Code Changes

New "CodeWatcher" publication helps builders stay ahead of the curve

CodeWatcher is a new online and print publication that merges the complex world of building codes, standards and green certification. The publication is designed to help builders navigate the ever-changing and increasingly complex landscape of codes and regulations as well as official programs designed to produce safer, smarter, and greener homes.

In addition to addressing code trends, new regulations, safety issues, green building programs and rating systems, CodeWatcher showcases high-performance building products and best practices that not only meet, but often exceed, current codes. Kudos to the Green Builder Media Group for launching this new resource and for continuing to shape the national dialogue on green building, sustainability, enabling technologies, building science and now… code updates.
