2008 NYC construction codes start July 1
New York City Dept. of Buildings will mandate 2008 codes for all new construction.
After a year of having the choice between 2008 NYC Construction Codes and the 1968 Building Code, new construction in New York City must abide by the new codes starting July 1 .
In the first major modernization of the city's building codes in nearly 40 years, the 2008 NYC Construction Codes are based on the International Building, Plumbing, Mechanical, and Fuel Gas Codes as well as the International Codes .
"The new codes will help to ensure the highest level of safety for New Yorkers, bring uniformity to the city's construction projects and make New York City's buildings more energy efficient," said International Code Council CEO Richard P. Weiland.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
