Frisco offers classes on new building code

FRISCO – Beginning Wednesday, April 17, the Town of Frisco will begin a series of classes designed to train developers, designers and builders on the new building codes adopted in January.

The first classes will be an overview of the International Residential Code (IRC). The IRC contains all code requirements for detached one- and two-family dwellings and multiple single-family dwellings (townhouses) not more than three stories in height and their accessory structures. The class will present the requirements of the IRC and explore the differences between the IRC and the residential provisions of the previously used Uniform Building Code. Building official Gary Pringey states, “This series of classes is designed to ease the transition to the recently adopted codes, explain the differences and answer questions for developers, designers and contractors.”

It is strongly recommended attendees bring an IRC code book to the class.

The energy efficiency, mechanical and plumbing provisions of the IRC will be presented at future classes to be held later this spring.

This one-day class will be presented on both Wednesday and Wednesday April 24 from 2-5 p.m. in the Frisco town council chambers. To register, stop by town hall at First and Main and fill out a registration form, or call the town of Frisco building department directly at (970) 668-5276 ext. 7. Building department staff will contact you to confirm your registration date. Registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is free, but class size is limited, so sign up now.
