North Carolina Building Code is highly detailed, and every job site is different. When real-world specifics collide with code books, there can be a difference of opinion on how to interpret and apply code. Our code administrators are here to provide our customers and staff alike with clarity.
Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement is committed to minimizing the disruption when a code interpretation issue occurs. Furthermore, once a code interpretation issue has been resolved, we want to document this for consistent application of the code interpretation. To this end, we regularly hold consistency meetings for each trade. Read Code Enforcement's Consistency Policy.
We hold regular Code Academy trainings (formerly called "consistency" meetings) for residential building, commercial building, electrical, mechanical/fuel gas, and plumbing.
Our Code Academy meetings occur at 8 a.m. on the following schedule:
We welcome and encourage our customers to participate in these meetings at our headquarters:
2145 Suttle Avenue, Charlotte, N.C.
In addition to monthly Code Academy trainings, we hold annual Code Connections meetings. Code Connections meetings are meant to inform builders on critical code, administrative or process changes, along with legislative updates. Meetings also cover code basics, technical issues, permit and inspection issues, all in one meeting.
We also take questions from attendees and discuss individual customer issues. These meetings are announced several weeks in advance. To receive e-mail notification of these meetings, sign up to receive our quarterly newsletter below.
Sign up to receive our quarterly newsletter, which contains important code information, here. Sign up as a contractor or design professional -- those customers receive the newsletter, and other important updates, automatically.
