City of Chicago Announces Code Relief for Multifamily Rehabs

Preservation Compact partners BPI and Neighborhood Building Owners Alliance (NBOA) worked together to identify changes to the building code to generate real savings for multifamily rehabs. In response to our recommendations, the City of Chicago is providing administrative relief to allow flexible conduit on the electric side, as well as sensible relief on the energy code, lighting and ventilation.
