Comments Off on ICC Unveils 2012 International Green Construction Code

The 2012 International Green Construction Code was just announced this week by the International Code Council – and it intends to be the first holistic code based on environmentally positive design. Rather than focusing on a few tweaks like traditional codes, the IgCC 2012 looks at a project’s entire system performance and breaks down specific details for compliance. The Green Code’s intent is to improve energy efficiency, reduce waste, and improve health — goals that its development co-partner the USGBC has been holding up as a mantle for years.

Comments Off on Architecture For Humanity Partners with AIA to Further Disaster Relief Efforts

If you’ve ever wanted to get more involved with the good humanitarian work of Architecture For Humanity, there’s an even better chance to volunteer now through your local chapters. The American Institute of Architects and Architecture For Humanity have announced a major strategic partnership that will expand the industry’s commitment to disaster assistance and long-term reconstruction. While the two organizations’ missions are different, they have recognized their complementary skills and the new collaboration will provide architects a way to use those strengths in their local community. We couldn’t be more thrilled that these two organizations are teaming up and providing more options for volunteering.
