Making Building Codes More Accessible

Conversations with Scott Reynolds, the founder of UpCodes

In this podcast, we discuss the amazing service now offered by UpCodes where you can look building codes up online and even from a mobile app.

We see examples of how you can look up a code and then copy the link and attach it as a hot link to your inspection report.

We see an example of what that looks like for the end user in an inspection report.

We learn more about development plans that UpCodes has for the future, such as adding the ability to search codes by date, and we learn about New York City and why many projects there are still going off the old 1969 building code.

To try UpCodes for yourself! There is a free version to get going and premium versions for additional features. click this link.
