For the last two code cycles, DHCD has negotiated with the International Code Council (ICC) to publish the Virginia amended codes. We will begin those negotiations again, and we need your input.
In addition to the printed material, what tools would help you do your job? Whether from a compliance, design or construction standpoint, today’s technology and tools are changing, and DHCD would like to be able to provide the products that will most benefit our client groups.
We will begin the negotiations with ICC in early June, so if you would provide us with input and recommendations over the next six weeks, it would be very helpful.
We hope to negotiate and provide some of these new services or products, or at least encourage their development. If you can imagine it, send it. This can be as complex as mobile apps for inspections that include a checklist, video, photo or commentary of code requirements when you click on them from your tablet or smart phone. If it will benefit you and your jurisdiction, we want to know.
Please send any ideas, input or recommendations to Cindy Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your ideas!
