A startup called UpCodes wants to make code compliance easier for architects and builders through a new app.
The app, which is accessible on mobile devices, enables users to search building codes of 40 states and New York City. It puts building regulations from multiple jurisdictions in one place and includes collaboration tools so team members can research and share notes on projects.
The tools allow users to hyperlink to sections of code and create project folders that they can share with other team members. Saving project notes can help firms build institutionalized knowledge that can be accessed while working on future projects, UpCodes says.
