The Home Builders Association of Delaware would like to share, with its members, a small update on the New Castle County (NCC) Code implementation of the International Residential Code (IRC) 2015:
“From the date of the adopted Code, the first week in March, for the first 90 days, until June 1st 2015, New Castle County will allow a transitional period to move from the IRC 2006 to IRC 2015. Either Code will be accepted during this transitional time. For the next 3 months (June 1st to September 1st, 2015), the Department will consider hardships for transitioning to the 2015 Code.
However, NCC expects that by June 1st, 2015, the majority of the permit activity will be evaluated in the 2015 IRC and International Building Code (IBC), as well as the (hopefully to be adopted at the state level) 2015 plumbing and mechanical code, and the 2012 energy code.”
