The City Council Energy and Environment Committee is tentatively scheduled to review the 2012 Seattle building, residential, existing building, mechanical, fuel gas, and plumbing codes on August 13. The Seattle Energy Code may be heard at a later meeting. We still can’t determine the exact date when the codes will take effect; they will not become mandatory before mid-November, 2013. Until then, applicants have the choice of using the 2009 or 2012 codes.
Drafts of the legislation are posted on DPD’s 2012 Building Code Update website
