Synopsis This Ordinance is being presented by the Administration for Council's review and approval. If approved by Council, the City of Wilmington, through the Department of Licenses and Inspections, would conduct building inspections and reviews for residential and business construction according to the International Code Council's 2012 edition of the building code. This edition of the code would replace the 2003 edition under which the City has been conducting reviews and inspections. The new code will provide an updated level of protection for the citizens of Wilmington regarding the construction and safety of buildings while at the same time meeting the standards of today's construction industry. The revised code has been reviewed and tested nationally to ensure the safety of occupants that dwell within structures and to hold those entities that build structures to the new code standards. The 2012 edition of the building code takes into consideration advances in construction technology, allowing for newer and safer methods of building construction, maximizing safety while allowing for the construction of more economically feasible buildings.
