2018 PA UCC Residential Code Update

Date: February 17, 2022

Description: In accordance with the requirements of Act 45 of 1999 as amended, the Pennsylvania Uniform Construction Code (UCC) Review and Advisory Council (RAC) completed the review of the 2018 I-Codes on April 29, 2021. The code provisions that were adopted during this process will take effect in the first quarter of 2022. This program will review implications of transitioning to 2018 ICC base codes, discuss PA legislative and RAC amendments, and dive into some highlights of the new code provisions for residential construction. This program will also take a closer look at air sealing, stucco and stone wall assemblies, and the updated PA Alternative Residential Energy Provisions.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review the overall PA Uniform Construction Code update process and timeline for implementation in 2022.
2. Discuss and highlight some of the most substantial and noteworthy code provision changes that will impact design, cost, and occupant safety.
3. Dive deeper into various code changes that will more substantially impact residential construction, including increased building envelope airtightness requirements.
4. Understand available resources to further study best practices that may be impacted by code changes, specifically focusing on those that affect the building enclosure.
