With the adoption of the 2016 Denver Building Code, the city will be in a transition period until the new code’s effective date: September 12, 2016. How will this affect your project?
Before 9/12/16, customers may apply for building permits under the 2011 code (2009 IECC) or the 2016 code (2015 IECC).
On 9/12/16 and after, customers must adhere to the 2016 code unless given prior approval.
If you expect to submit applications for building permits after 9/12/16 but you wish to proceed under the 2011 Denver Building Code, the owner or owner’s agent for your project must submit a letter no later than Friday, August 26, 2016.
