The Building Code Commission (BCC) is tasked with protecting public health, safety and welfare by
establishing our state's minimum standards of construction.
Safe structures are achieved through a combination of code-based design & construction practices, and
an inspection process that ensures compliance with the established standards.
Model building codes provide the first and best line of defense against careless construction and sub-par
materials which can lead to catastrophic structural failures.
However, model building codes don't only ensure building safety, they also establish uniformity in the
industry which helps keep costs down; cost savings which are passed on to the end consumer - RI property
