SEDAC Energy Code trainers Shawn Maurer and Ryan Siegel traveled to Springfield on October 17, 2023 to present an energy code workshop, 2021 IECC: Code Basics and Simplifying Code Compliance. About 30 code officials, architects, and contractors from across Illinois came together in person to learn the basics of the 2021 IECC and design considerations that simplify code compliance.

The 3-hour workshop covered the basics of the 2021 IECC (including Illinois amendments), which may become effective in November 2023. During the meeting attendees learned of the latest update to the adjusted effective date schedule.

According to SEDAC’s Technical Director Shawn Mauer, “providing in-person workshops is a great way for us to meet face to face with the energy-code stakeholders we mostly engage with over e-mail and phone.”
