ICC and MBI Release New Standards for Off-Site Construction

The International Code Council (ICC) and the Modular Building Institute (MBI) have recently published two new comprehensive standards that will accelerate the off-site construction industry. ICC/MBI 1200-2021 Standard for Off-Site Construction: Planning, Design, Fabrication and Assembly and ICC/MBI 1205-2021 Standard for Off-Site Construction: Inspection and Regulatory Compliance are intended to promote consistency of regulatory requirements for off-site construction processes. As the building industry continues to face multiple challenges including housing affordability, job site safety, building quality, and sustainability, the expanded use of off-site construction, often called modular construction or prefabrication, is one approach that has risen to address these challenges.
