The Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) is pleased to announce that each jurisdiction responsible for enforcing the Virginia Uniform State Building Code will receive one complete complimentary set of 2012 Virginia Codes!
In order for DHCD to complete negotiations with ICC, we need to know if you prefer to receive your set of Virginia Codes as a printed set or as a premium electronic version. A survey from DHCD was recently emailed to each building official.
We anticipate that the 2012 Virginia Codes will be printed by late next Spring. Your jurisdiction will receive its complimentary set shortly thereafter. The premium electronic versions may take a little longer. For informational purposes, the premium electronic version will include:
- Sophisticated search and bookmarking capabilities
Ability to highlight words/code sections and add annotations
Hyperlinks within each code document for quick access to references within the code
Links to ICC copyrighted standards in PDF format and selected public domain standards in PDF format
We need the survey response no later than close of business on Friday, Aug. 30, 2013. Jurisdictions who do not respond by this date will automatically receive the premium electronic version.
