MNSPECT – CONTINUING EDUCATION SERVICES – CODE BOOKS

Code Books

MNSPECT Continuing Education’s mission is to “help you comply with the code”, using classes and code books.  We strongly believe that if we all understand the requirements of the code and work together to achieve compliance, then corrections, errors, and costs will be reduced as a result.

To that end, we have developed code & statute-based continuing education classes that help you comply with the code, whether you are a Building Official, Building Contractor, Manufactured Home Installer, Remodeler, Building Inspector or Roofer.

In addition, we are an International Code Council reseller of code books. These code books cover Building Code Minnesota Residential Code, Fuel Gas Code, Mechanical Code, Accessibility Code, Fire Code, Energy Code, Mechanical Code and Conservation Code for Existing Buildings.

The entire MN code book library is available for purchase at reduced rates with shipping included.

2020 MINNESOTA STATE BUILDING CODES (CODE BOOK REQUIREMENTS)

The 2020 Minnesota State Building Code is effective March 31, 2020, except for the Minnesota Mechanical Fuel Gas Code, which is effective April 6, 2020.

It is the minimum construction standard throughout all of Minnesota. Although it is not enforceable by municipalities unless it is adopted by local ordinance, it creates a level playing field for the construction industry by establishing the Minnesota State Building Code as the standard for the construction of all buildings in the state.

Don’t take our word for it . . .

“The transition period was seamless and the city felt more informed than ever before from a communications standpoint.  MNSPECT staff expertise is exceptional and they have proven an invaluable resource to the city…Their willingness to go above and beyond at every turn has shown their superior commitment to not only customer service but to the community a well.  In turn, the city’s level of service and response times have improved exponentially…MNSPECT is truly an asset to our community!”

SANDIE THONE • FORMER CITY ADMIN

“My experience with MNSPECT was positive all around.  Being in the field, there are many objectives we need to overcome that are usually unscheduled and many times a surprise.  From plan reviews to scheduling to inspections, everyone was very positive and accommodating.  MNSPECT provided excellent customer service to me and my company which can easily be lost dealing with larger cities.”

HEATH BROWN • PROJECT SUPERINTENDENT, DR Horton, America's Builder
