THE CODES GUIDEBOOK FOR INTERIORS




Codes and standards continue to change and evolve. Even federal regulations are amended and updated. Why does this seem like a neverending process? Because it is a never-ending process. The various organizations and individuals that develop the regulations continue to evaluate our interaction with buildings, the way we build them, and what we put in them; then, they propose and implement changes to the requirements to make buildings safer and better for us.

 Thus,we want codes, standards , and federal regulations to change to be consistent with what we, as a society, feel is a reasonable level of safety and health. So, you can view the regulations that we will discuss in this book as a codified form of expectations for the built environment to protect us and not harm us. That is why there is ongoing discussion and change.

Codes change for wide array of reasons and in response to a variety of events. Evaluations of recent building fires, natural disasters, and even acts of terrorism shed light on how building safety can be improved.

Industry trends, new building products, and improved technology provide new options for addressing building safety. In addition to concerns about safety, changing ideals for the health, quality and equitability of our environments drive changes in sustainability, energy efficiency, and accessibility requirements to name a few. 

In the future editions of the codes, we will most likely see evidence of what we have learned from a recent world pandemic that affects our desire for health and safety in our buildings. In many cases, each concern has a separate advocate group and results directly in code requirements. But the increase in collaboration between groups is helping to minimize redundant efforts that can create conflicts between requirements or redundant codes. Regardless, the ongoing changes challenge design professionals to stay up-to-date.
