This book introduces the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard that was developed in a collaborative effort between the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the International Code Council (ICC). The ICC 700-2008 is the first and only true-consensus-based standard for residential green building, and is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This introductory guide, published by the International Code Council, looks at the history, intent, organization and application of the standard. Check out our app, DEWALT Mobile Pro™.
