09/05/2008


As a result of a recent conference call , the Florida Building Commission has decided to extend the 2007 Florida Building Code implementation date to Dec. 31, 2008, rather than Oct. 1, 2008, as previously announced. The commission cited two reasons for this change:
* There are a large number of glitch amendments that they need to address
* The Energy Code changes were originally scheduled for implementation on Dec. 31, 2008, so now the Building Code changes implementation will coincide with that date.
