ACTION REQUESTED: Stop Tall Wood Proposals
NRMCA members are urged to tell the International Code Council (ICC) to vote no on mass timber proposals that threaten public safety. This is an extremely critical issue and NRMCA needs your help in providing a public comment for Disapproval on G108-18, a proposal that would allow Cross Laminated Timber to be used in up to 18-story buildings in the International Building Code. Complete instructions are listed in the link below as well as sample comments. Please consider taking this important step for your industry and please share with as many concrete industry colleagues as possible. Deadline for public comments is Monday, July 16.
Now is the time to take action by urging the ICC to say no to these dangerous proposals that are up for a final vote which closes on Nov 27, 2018. Join the public hearing process to let your voices be heard. This highly-combustible mass timber must be stopped. However, and to be clear, your comments need to be technical in nature and substantive: Just saying “wood burns” or “I don’t like CLT” (while true) is not enough.
