Building Codes on Main Street Training Workshop

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, WEDC, is pleased to announce a major training opportunity titled Building Codes on Main Street to be held August 2-4, 2022. This three-day virtual workshop was developed by the Association for Preservation Technology International (APT), with sponsorships from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT) and the Historic Preservation Education Foundation (HPEF). Main Street America is a coordinating partner as well.

This workshop will focus on code issues related to the renovation of existing and historic commercial buildings found in Main Street districts across America. It is designed for code officials, architects, contractors, property owners, developers, preservationists, and Main Street practitioners. It will take place from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM CST each day.

Fees are:                         

  • $175 – APT and Main Street members
  • $295 – Non-members
  •  $175 – Government Rate
  • $ 75 – Student


The agenda includes speakers from around the United States, and will delve into the International Existing Building Code (IEBC), accessibility, energy conservation, fire separation, fire protection, change of use, the multiple compliance paths of IEBC, case studies, and a 2.5 hour deep dive into the Performance compliance method. Many of these topics are not taught in typical code training seminars, which focus mostly on new construction, so even veteran code officials and architects should learn a great deal from it, as well as property owners, developers and Main Street practitioners.
