Building Codes Expert Witness
IEI’s building codes consultants are knowledgeable in applying codes to building systems and components
Ivey Engineering’s building codes expert witnesses have considerable experience with most building codes and industry standards. Essential to protecting an occupant’s health and safety, building codes are regulations that govern the construction of buildings and other types of facilities. Also, codes regulate the manufacture of products used in construction.
National model codes include those published by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO), International Code Council (ICC) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Industry standards are published by NFPA; NSF; ASTM; Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI); Underwriter Laboratories (UL); American Society of Heating Refrigerating, Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and other organizations to complement the codes.
Our building codes consultants have decades of experience designing building systems; many of our experts have extensive background in the construction industry and routinely apply codes and standards when resolving disputes that involve building systems and products.
