Rhode Island Is First State to Adopt New IGCC Green Building Codes

Text size: A A

Rhode Island has become the first state to adopt the new International Green Construction Code. The state has identified the IGCC as an “equivalent standard” to meet requirements that all new major facility projects by state agencies be constructed as green buildings. Sponsors of the IGCC standards include the American Institute of Architects, ASTM International, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, the Green Building Council and the Illuminating Engineers Society. The new standards will take effect in Rhode Island this month.
