Explained: City of Austin IECC 2021 Mechanical & Plumbing Code Updates (VIDEO)

In this third episode of a four-part series, we discuss how mechanical & plumbing code updates will affect building designers and developers in Austin, TX.

On September 1st, 2021, the City of Austin adopted the 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). You may have noticed that Austin completely skipped the 2018 version of the code, meaning that we are now adopting older changes from 2018 as well as new changes in 2021.

In this third video of a four-part series, we discuss how key changes in the requirements for Mechanical & Plumbing design and controls will affect building designers and developers in Austin, TX.

Check out the first two IECC code update videos here:
