Sustainable Building Council Open for Applications

Department of Safety and Professional Services Secretary Dawn Crim recognized National Building Code Safety Month by opening applications to the Wisconsin Advisory Council on Building Sustainability. This new advisory council will work closely with the Commercial Building Code Council, Uniform Dwelling Code Council, and Plumbing Code Advisory Committee to identify code updates that will expand opportunities for the construction industry to more quickly and affordably transition toward sustainable materials, systems and practices.

Crim says evaluating and identifying opportunities in building codes is an essential step in moving the construction industry toward clean energy. Wisconsin’s Council on Building Sustainability will review all building and construction codes and provide recommendations on changes that would increase safety, resiliency and sustainability.

The department invites interested individuals with experience in construction, sustainable regulation, clean energy, or related fields to apply to serve on the council.
