Innovative Materials and Systems Pilot Program
The Innovative Materials and Systems Pilot Program allows rural owner-builders of small innovative dwellings the option of seeking an exemption from some aspects of currently adopted building codes.
The purpose of the Pilot Program is to support community members who are interested in utilizing sustainable and innovative building methods, materials and systems that are outside the scope of prescriptive building codes. Building codes exist to ensure the safety of the built environment, but are limited to mainstream construction. This can sometimes stifle innovation and sustainable building practice.
