Project Description

I need you to review the current Structural (Residential and/or Commercial) Building Code Information for all 50 states.

You will use three sources for each and need to supply the answer and a suggested building code for each state and whether or not there is a statewide building code. If there is a statewide building code, please state whether or not each jurisdiction has to enforce this. There are about 25 states that have statewide building codes that must be adopted by each jurisdiction.

The main sites to find this information are ICC website:

The Reed Construction Building Codes:

And then local/state code information:
Here's an example of the site to find local building code information for the state of Louisiana: [url removed, login to view]
(the reed construction site typically has links)

Just need to state IRC and/or IBC year (preferably both) for each state, each source (3 sources) and whether or not it is a statewide code and whether or not all jurisdictions have to adopt it.

Use excel and have 1 header row and then 50 rows (one for each state) and 9 columns:
Column 1: State name
Column 2: IRC value based on ICC site
Column 3: Is column 2 mandatory statewide?
Column 4: is column 2 value adopted by all jurisdictions?
Column 5: IBC value based on ICC site
Column 6: Is column 5 mandatory statewide?
Column 7: is column 5 value adopted by all jurisdictions?
Column 8: IRC value based on Reed Construction site
Column 9: Is column 8 mandatory statewide?
Column 10: is column 8 value adopted by all jurisdictions?
Column 11: IBC value based on Reed Construction
Column 12: Is column 11 mandatory statewide?
Column 13: is column 11 value adopted by all jurisdictions?
Column 14: IRC value based on State/Local site
Column 15: Is column 14 mandatory statewide?
Column 16: is column 14 value adopted by all jurisdictions?
Column 17: Source of Column 14-16
Column 18: IBC value based on State/Local Site
Column 19: Is column 18 mandatory statewide?
Column 20: is column 18 value adopted by all jurisdictions?
Column 21: Source of Column 18-20

Thank you!
