Building Code

The Building Code in the construction industry refers to a set of regulations and standards that dictate the design, construction, alteration, and maintenance of buildings to ensure safety, health, and environmental protection. These codes cover various aspects, including structural integrity, fire safety, accessibility, energy efficiency, and sanitation. Building codes are enforced by local or national governmental agencies and must be adhered to by architects, engineers, contractors, and developers. Compliance with the building code is crucial for obtaining construction permits and ensuring that structures are safe and habitable.
