One of Fiatech’s news projects, this Technology Tuesday Webinar shares with you the background behind and the work involved in the Fiatech U.S. Local Codes in the Cloud project!
Model building codes and standards and the local amendments that are added to them when they are adopted are disconnected and cause loss of time and money, in addition to creating liabilities for construction industry members. Most of the US States or jurisdictions adopt the copyrighted model codes, and then publish their amendments as separate documents. Currently, construction industry members need to coordinate model codes and local amendments manually. Only handful of states and large cities publish the adopted model codes and amendments as integrated documents.
The primary goal of this project is to create a cloud based library where model codes, state and local amendments, addendum, errata, executive orders are organized by jurisdiction, content is interlinked so one can find the complete construction requirements with a simple click.
To accomplish this goal, MADCAD technology was established in 1995 by Fiatech member Computecture, Inc. At that time the first HTML version Model Building Codes and Standards library. Currently MADCAD.com provides more than 50,000 Model Building Codes and Standards as well as state-wide codes in a searchable and continuously updated cloud. This project will expand the data in MADCAD.com cloud to the local level and Established a goal to cover 5,000 jurisdiction data in 24 months.
Complete data will save time, reduce errors, support life safety and provide a useful linkage and support database to other Fiatech projects as needed. Fiatech members will view the list of adopted codes and access amendments at no fee.
