IMT and ICC honored the winners of the 2015 Standard Bearers Awards for Excellence in Energy Code Compliance, in front of a packed audience at ICC's Awards Luncheon.
This national award program, started by IMT in 2012, honors states, cities, towns, and individuals who have gone above and beyond to raise compliance with building energy codes—and by doing so, help improve the efficiency of new and existing homes using cost-effective, practical, and innovative strategies.
The efforts made by this year’s winners include training more than 6,000 construction industry professionals on energy code compliance and conducting a baseline assessment against the 2009 and 2012 International Energy Conservation Codes (Illinois); creating a Green Building and Sustainability Division that provides leadership for the review and inspection of projects built under energy and green codes (Washington, D.C.); and offering a free, ICC-approved “Builders Survival Training Series” for home building association members that demonstrates how to build efficient homes and comply with modern codes.
