Weeks-long study spurs changes in Corinth's building code

By NEMS Daily Journal

CORINTH – The city board during its regular meeting on Tuesday adopted a change in Corinth’s building code.
The change introduces Minimum Residential Foundation Requirements to replace a table currently used for residential foundation construction.
A committee of builders, engineers and aldermen, joined by the city attorney, have been meeting for about two months to discuss possible code modifications.
The changes apply to the 2006 International Building Codes which were adopted in January 2008 to replace 1993-94 Southern Building Codes which the city had been using to guide city construction projects.
Building Inspector Philip Verdung said he fully supported the changes as an improvement to the current building code.
