Legal Effect and Issues Concerning Violation of the Building Code and Interaction of Building Code With Contract Documents and Specifications

 
“Developing and completing a construction project can be a daunting task. Gone are the nostalgic days of the barn-raising where an entire community came together to build a neighbor’s barn in a day. Building a barn today requires dozens of people, government regulations, construction personnel, an architect, and other professionals with permits, licenses, designs, and contracts. This procedure is abounding with the intricacies in building codes, city ordinances, and zoning laws with regulations, which often vary from community to community.

In the definition provided in the IBC, the purpose of the building code is to establish the minimum requirements necessary to ensure public health, safety and general welfare through structural strength, means of egress, stability, sanitation, adequate light and ventilation, energy conservation, and safety to life and property from fire and other hazards. However, these minimum requirements can lead to conflicts and confusion between differing building codes, contract specifications and significant differences in the directives of the owner, architect and engineer. In addition, these conflicts lead to questions on who is responsible when a code violation occurs. The following will discuss these issues in greater detail.”
