Building Codes

All house plans available from Ongri.Design™ meet or exceeds the International Residential Code (IRC), the industry standard for constructing residential homes.

It is important to note that regulations and building practices vary according to geographic location. Your blueprints may need to be modified to comply with local building conditions, energy codes, seismic and soil conditions, snow loads, zoning regulations and other ordinances. Usually, these modifications are minor, and a qualified builder can handle them.

All of our blueprints are to be used in strict compliance with all local building codes and ordinances.

The International Green Building Code (IGBC) is similar to the National Building Code-2016 (NBC). It encourages energy conservation through efficiency in envelope design, mechanical systems, lighting systems and the use of new materials and techniques. 

Some building authorities may require that an architect or engineer review your blueprints before construction. Contact your local building plan authority for requirements in your area.

We cannot be responsible for the advice or assistance you receive from them or for methods that they use. The owner and contractor assume the responsibility to meet all local codes.
