Product Listing by the International Code Council- Evaluation Services

 Today (December 2nd 2020) my company Spherical Block LLC received a Product Listing from the International Code Council-Evaluation Services (ICC-ES).  This puts my company's technology in accordance with the International Building Code (IBC) which is written by ICC.  This was a long, tedious, difficult and expensive process, but it's necessary for any new construction technology. 



So hooray!  It's a big step that I am glad to have accomplished and behind me.

Here are two pages from the listing itself: 






So there it is, another important step in commercialization of an idea completed. ICC-ES Product Listing.
