    The Seattle Residential Code and Seattle Energy Code will go into effect on January 1, , and will implement several important changes. This session will focus entirely on code applicable to single-family, duplex and townhouse projects. The International Code Council (ICC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing model codes and standards used in the design, build and compliance process. The International Codes (I-Codes) are the widely accepted, comprehensive set of model codes used in the US and abroad to help ensure the engineering of safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient structures.
