Massachusetts Municipalities Pursue Building Code Revisions While Awaiting State’s Next Steps

Check out this alert by Holland & Knight highlighting:

  • Chapter 8 of the Acts of 2021, An Act Creating a Next-Generation Roadmap for Massachusetts Climate Policy, requires the development of a voluntary municipal specialized stretch energy code within 18 months of the Climate Act’s passage; however, no plans have been announced by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources or the Board of Building Regulations and Standards.
  • Meanwhile, Massachusetts municipalities are seeking to use the Massachusetts legislative process to develop their own climate-influenced building code regulations in the absence of state action.
