The Building Performance and Regulations Committee (BP&R) reviews issues affecting building performance and current building codes. The committee is most concerned with regulations and ordinances that affect architectural practice and is the primary venue for evaluating pending or newly enacted revisions to the building code.

The committee’s aim is to provide the most up to date analysis of issues that effect building performance and will continue to evaluate and discuss all new building code regulations and revisions.
