Innovation: International Building Code
Location: United States
Year: 1997
By: International Code Council

Throughout the 20th century, the east coast, west coast, and southeast each had their own regional building codes that specified building regulations.  By the early nineties, it became evident that the nation needed a uniform standard for building regulations; the International Code Council was established in 1994, and after years of research, developed the International Building Code in 1997, which provided the first set of building regulations that had no regional limitations.  The development of the IBC provided uniformity to the design and construction processes of buildings, which ultimately ensured a greater sense of safety for buildings’ occupants.  `
