Building Codes can be traced as far back as the Code of Hammurabi (circa 1790 BC) from ancient Babylon, and have evolved over the centuries to encompass techniques, design, materials & more.

Building codes provide minimum standards to safeguard life and limb, health, property, public welfare & property values.

As of 2008, contractors are required by Minnesota law to adhere to the State Building Code.
