One was prepared by the Builuui l*fTicials Coiiforeucc of America, u) Ither by the National Board of Fire llndcrwriters. Both are "perform- Ince codes," allowing builders • renter choice of materials and ron- |ti'ucl!ovi methods as long as they with in .su fc st a ntJa rds for igth, stability and fire-resist- nce.

The Building Officials code states I hat walls in one and two-family liotncs can be of any material that withstand fire for 45 minutes; |*nd for 90 minutes in multi-family •structures. Full-thick mineral wool nsulation in a waH is recognised in 1-he code as meeting these recjuire- jjgnt.s. Most existing codes specify ^fcly masonry for sucrTTire-safcty. Other laws require outer walls [to be a foot thick: the BOCA code hays eight inches is enough. It also •permits spacing wall studs 4R" fcpnrt instead of the now generally•required 16"; permits loss expensive •plumbing, electric wiring, iaundn- |tions, Use of this code would rut homo • building costs by 15%, its sponsors • say, by allowing new materials and • construction techniques. Communl- Ities can adopt it at virtually no ex- Ipense, since the cost of preparing Ian adequate local law Is eliminated.
