Kansas Codes Collaborative
The Kansas Codes Collaborative is a stakeholder group that meets to identify strategies to support energy codes adoption and compliance in local jurisdictions. Participants include representatives from the residential and commercial building industries and codes officials from Kansas cities and counties that have already adopted (or are planning to adopt) the 2009 or more recent International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
The diversity of the Collaborative's membership enables it to consider the differences in the codes, enforcement strategies, resources, and needs of the local jurisdictions. The Kansas Codes Collaborative builds on the activities of the Energy Efficiency Building Codes Working Group, which met from 2009 to 2011.
KCC Staff collected information for cities and counties including the most recent building codes and residential building permit numbers reported by cities and counties to the U.S. Census Bureau. Nineteen jurisdictions have adopted the 2009 or more recent IECC Building Codes. Those jurisdictions represent approximately 39% of the total new single unit residential building permits issued state-wide in 2015.
