Scottsdale Construction Systems maximizes building product code recognition in six international regions.
Brea, CA – ICC Evaluation Services (ICC-ES) provides conformity assessment services to customers in 60 countries worldwide. As the marketplace becomes increasingly global, many manufacturers are utilizing the one-stop-shop testing, inspection and certification provider to obtain proof of code compliance for multiple geographies.
Manufacturers benefit from multiple code recognitions, expanding their market reach and speeding up approvals. An ICC-ES client, Scottsdale Construction Systems recently added recognition to the Abu Dhabi International Building Code to their ESR-2093 Evaluation Report as well as recognition to the Australian Building Code, New Zealand Building Code, and Saudi Building Code to ESR-1538 for cold-formed steel metal framing members via supplement reports. The reports also now contain recognition to the Florida Building Code (including High Velocity Hurricane Zone) and the California Building Code, highlighting conformance to local as well as international codes.
Scottsdale steel frames offer a beneficial alternative to traditional building materials.
“We are thrilled to see more and more manufacturers taking advantage of the global certification program with ICC-ES,” said Melissa Sanchez, ICC-ES Principle Structural Engineer. “This additional code recognition will streamline product approval time in multiple markets, allowing Scottsdale Construction Systems products to get to market faster.”
Derek McSpadden, President and CEO of Scottsdale Construction Systems added, “ICC-ES is a strong global brand in the space of construction regulation. As the leading developer of construction technologies, Scottsdale found in ICC-ES the perfect code-approval partner to match our global footprint and bring tremendous value to our customer base. We look forward to advancing our North American, South American, Australasia, and Middle East approvals to other products and regions.”
