Building Codes & Licensing

Home/Building Codes & Licensing

On a day to day basis, there are few policy issues that rival building codes for the impact they have on an architect’s work.  AIA Georgia stays involved with the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (which is very involved in building codes), the state Fire Marshall, the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) and the Association of County Commissioners of Georgia (ACCG), and other various entities that influence building, fire, and energy efficiency codes in the state.

Check back to this space soon for a redesigned, more robust resource for learning how architects can influence how building codes impact our work.


The licensing process is also a recurring concern and responsibility for Georgia architects.  AIA Georgia stays engaged with the Secretary of State’s office, which is charged with managing the state Architects and Interior Designers Licensing Board.  We will be posting more on this soon.  Check back.
