Update on the City and County of Honolulu’s Building Codes
New 2012 Building Codes Take Effect This August
The City Council passed the 2012 Building Code on May 20, 2020 through Bill 50(2019) thereby adopting the new Hawaii State Building Code with local amendments officially making them law. The 2012 International Building and Residential Codes via Ordinance 20‐7 will become effective 90 days after their enactment (August 18, 2020). Bill 25(2019) the Hawaii State Energy Code, which is based upon the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code, was also passed by City Council on May 20, 2020. The Mayor has 10 working days to veto this bill or it will become law automatically (on June 3, 2020). Therefore, the effective date for the Energy Code will be 90 days after its enactment, so the effective date will be somewhere around the end of August 2020.
Tim Hiu, Deputy Director for the Department of Planning and Permitting for the City and County of Honolulu will update attendees on the impact these new codes will have, and also what progress is being made with the State Building Code Council concerning the amendments for the 2018 ICC Building and Residential Code Cycles currently under review.

As a licensed Civil Engineer in the State of Hawaii, he has over 34 years of experience in construction and in government. Prior to his appointment to Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s Cabinet, he held the position of Division Chief of the Building Safety Division, where he administered the Building, Electrical, Plumbing, Housing and Energy Efficiency Codes of the City and County of Honolulu, with a staff of Electrical, Mechanical, Structural, and Civil Engineers, as well as inspectors to enforce the building codes.
