Now available in a searchable, online library.
all local jurisdictions in Michigan
must have reasonable access to standards.
This includes access to the Michigan Codes, as well as the referenced standards listed in in the codes each individual local jursidiction enforces.*
Reasonable access means that plan reviewers and inspectors of the enforcing agency must have practical access to the standards to properly enforce the code. It is suggested that hardcopy books be within 100 miles of the local jurisdiction.
*According to Stille-Derossett-Hale Single State Construction Code Act, 1972 PA 230 and Section 8b(6) of 1972 PA 230.
Example: Group 2 has a population of 311,000* with construction costs of $153,000,000**. This group includes 160 jurisdictions within 12 counties: Alcona County, Alpena County, Antrim County, Charlevoix County, Crawford County, Cheboygan County, Emmet County, Kalkaska County, Montmorency County, Oscoda County, Otsego County and Presque Isle County.
If a single jurisdiction were to buy 1 hardcopy set of standards, the cost would be over $10,000. By sharing online access amongst counties, costs are brought down to $9,000 total for all jurisdictions together.
This package includes 224 codes and standards and allows users from different jurisdictions to share access, with one concurrent user able to access each title at a time. If some titles are used more then others, it is possible to add more concurrent users to specific titles for an additional cost.
Annual subscription price: $9,000
Due to a higher population and higher rate of growth, there will be more code officials and building permits given, thus we've created a package which includes 224 titles with more than one concurrent user for specific titles.
Annual subscription price: $18,000
