Strategic Planning + Market Forecasting

Building codes and construction and product standards are developed through membership organizations such as The International Code Council (ICC), The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), and similar organizations.

All 50 states and the District of Columbia have adopted minimum codes and standards as a means of creating safe buildings and communities, and to protect the health and safety and welfare of people. Many other countries have adopted codes and standards developed in the United States. Such codes and standards are regularly revised and updated in order to provide the highest quality codes, standards, products, and services for all concerned with the safety and performance of the built environment.

 

Our Insights Are Your Inside Track

As a result, companies or entire industries can be significantly affected by the final outcome of the code changes, either for the better or the worse. Having 3 to 5 years of advanced notice of impending changes to the code requirement that impacts the product or service before a new code or standard is published is an invaluable planning tool for market forecasting and product development.

InterCode provides products and services that provide such advance notice and specialized insights to help our clients with their long-term and short-term planning.
