The International Code Council has announced the release of the ICC Digital Codes Premium Revit® Add-In. The new add-in allows architects, designers, engineers, and building safety professionals to access and reference building codes and standards directly from within Autodesk Revit.
“We’re very pleased to provide Revit users with a tool that helps minimize time to construction,” said Joan O’Neil, Chief Knowledge Officer for the Code Council. “Until now, architects and engineers have had to look through multiple code books or switch back and forth with various resources in a separate browser. With this new add-in, design professionals can use the codes as they work, without interrupting their workflow.”
The Open API integration provides side-by-side access to ICC Digital Codes Premium, enabling design professionals to validate construction plans with authorized building codes and standards during the design process itself.
The Revit Add-In provides full features and functionality of the ICC Digital Codes Premium browser version. Design professionals can:
- View content in each title directly within Revit
- Perform advanced searching and save searches
- Create bookmarks and favorites, and use Quick Access tools
- Copy, paste, and print codes
- Use hyperlinks to quickly find and read support materials
- Create notes that can be organized and migrated to various code editions
- Highlight and annotate code sections
“We know our architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) customers are looking for better ways to validate their designs that will help expedite time to construction,” said Jim Quanci, Senior Director, Developer Advocacy at Autodesk. “Integrating access to building codes and standards from the Code Council directly while inside Revit is a real game changer. “
The add-in is compatible with Autodesk Revit 2023, Autodesk Revit 2022, and Autodesk Revit 2021 on 64-bit Microsoft® Windows® 10 or Windows® 11 operating systems and is available on both the Code Council website and the Autodesk App Store.
