IYOG Spotlight on Glass and Glazing in the Model Building Codes

This month, as part of NGA's continued support and celebration of the International Year of Glass 2022, we’re spotlighting how glass can contribute to building occupant safety and energy conservation in the model building codes.
NGA is actively involved with standards and codes bodies including the International Code Council, ASTM International and ASHRAE, among others, to promote and defend the use of glass in the built environment. NGA's Urmilla Sowell, Tom Culp, Thom Zaremba and Nick Resetar hold leadership positions and represent the glass and glazing industry in the International Code Council, ASHRAE 90.1, ISO International Standards Organization, PAWS: Partnership for Advanced Window Solutions, National Green Building Standard, ASTM and ASC Z97.
