Anyone in the AEC community knows how difficult it can be to find codes they need for projects.
Different towns, states and countries have different rules and regulations. But a new app promises to help AEC professionals find what they need on any web-enabled phone.
Started by two brothers, Scott and Garrett Reynolds – one, an architect and the other, a software engineer – UpCodes provides an accessible platform for construction codes and works to consolidate building regulations into a single searchable database.
Beyond making codes and regulations easier to navigate, the app simplifies coordination by allowing users to hyperlink to sections of code and creates project folders to share with other team members. So far, the start up has amassed building codes for about 40 states, as well as New York City, with regulations for Seattle, Los Angels and Denver coming soon.
The company says they already have 45,000 monthly active users.
