Richard Anderson has joined the International Code Council as a director of plumbing, mechanical and fuel gas resources in the Government Relations Department. As part of his responsibilities, he will work with the Code Council’s team of experts to develop, coordinate and implement PMG programs and services related to the International Codes.
With 23 years of building safety and PMG experience, most recently he represented the city of Fort Collins, Colorado as a chief building official where he oversaw the enforcement of all building codes for the city.
“Having long admired the Code Council’s work in building safety and having previously participated as a committee member for work group A IRC Plumbing and Mechanical, I am excited to join the organization,” said Anderson. “It is critical that the building safety industry both understands and adapts to the changing needs of society, and I cannot wait to lead the charge.”
Anderson will also oversee the Code Council’s new Water Conservation Resource Center, located in Colorado, which will provide resources for communities related to water efficiency and conservation.
