2021 Denver Building and Fire Code, Denver Green Code adoption process
The City and County of Denver is adopting a new building and fire code, which will incorporate the 2021 series of international codes, as well as advance the voluntary 2019 Denver Green Code. To kick-off the code adoption process, we've created working groups to consider updates to energy and holistic sustainability requirements in Denver's building codes and regulations.
We want your input! Join us as we discuss keeping Denver balanced and viable for the long term. Before we begin the formal code adoption process, we’ll be hosting a series of targeted working group discussions.
Meetings will be focused around two themes:
- Raising the bar on energy performance, and
- Defining holistic sustainability priorities and ideas beyond those related to energy.
