Denver’s New Building & Fire Code Amendments: What Owners Need to Know -
A Colorado Business Roundtable event presented by ACEC Colorado

As you may know, the Denver Building & Fire Code establishes the minimum, mandatory standards for building construction in Denver, based on international standards for safe, habitable structures. On Dec. 23, 2019, Denver adopted an updated building and fire code based on the 2018 series of base codes from the International Code Council (ICC). The new building code also includes a “Denver Green Code” designed to encourage more sustainable design and construction practices. As part of the local business community, you are invited to learn more about how these changes will affect the buildings you own, manage or develop.

A representative from City & County of Denver, as well as experts in the consulting engineering and building industry, will offer an overview of Denver’s process in adopting the new code followed by a targeted discussion with Q&A on the changes that could impact you the most. Stay after the program to enjoy refreshments while networking with the speakers during a reception! This event is part of Colorado Engineers Week 2020 (Feb. 16-22).
