URL: http://www.dcat.net/Codes/Breaking_Down_Barriers.pdf
Description: Results of a survey of both 'code users' and 'code officials' represents the first comprehensive effort to gather information about building regulation and green building. The survey was intended to develop a more thorough understanding of the barriers, identify the most common problems, and seek successful strategies to overcome them. The information will be used to assess and prioritize specific areas that need the most attention in order to facilitate the shift toward best sustainable building and development practices.
