New CT State Building Code Update in 2018
The current 2016 CT State Building Code is scheduled to be changed on October 1, 2018 to the 2018 CT State Building Code (CSBC). The new Code will be comprised of the 2015 International Code Council (ICC) model codes and the 2018 CT Amendments. There will be a 6 month grace period for projects that are currently in the design phase and not yet permitted.
The current Draft version of the 2018 CSBC can be downloaded from:

The structural provisions of the new 2018 CSBC do not affect the design requirements for buildings but there are new provisions in Special Inspection requirements for aspects of light-framed buildings constructed with wood or cold-formed steel. You can expect increased inspection requirements for those portions of your building projects.
What's Happening at TDEG:

TDEG Softball Team
TDEG employees came out on June 26 to support their team, the Longknockers. They won the game, their fourth win in a row! After the game, TDEG provided sandwiches, salads and drinks for the spectators and the team. TDEG employees who play on the team are Jason Henion, Chris Briggs, Ryan Walsh and Jeff Nabozna. The team plays at Cadigan Park In Brookfield.

Meet Amelia Margaret Walsh!
Ryan and Carolyn Walsh welcomed their new baby girl on June 22. She came into the world a few weeks early but everyone is healthy and doing well!

Good-Bye to Our Summer Interns
Jeff Nabozna (Clemson, SC) looks forward to taking the knowledge he learned at TDEG back to school with him as he finishes up his final year.

Brett Lowrie (University of Rhode Island) felt lucky to be working on projects and then going out in the field and seeing projects during construction.

Annika Hill was very helpful putting together Marketing materials and is looking forward to starting
college this year at St. Olaf College in Minnesota.

We will miss them and wish them the best of luck in the year ahead!
