Welcome Mia Marvelli as New Executive Director of Building Standards Commission
The Department of General Services announced Feb 9 that Mia Marvelli has been appointed California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) Executive Director.
Marvelli joined the CBSC in 2012 with 20 years of prior state service including the Department of Water Resources and the Department of General Services, Real Estate Services Division. Prior to being named executive director, Marvelli served CBSC as a staff architect who administered the processes related to the adoption, approval, publication, and implementation of California’s building codes. In addition, she developed building standards and green building standards regulations on behalf of CBSC.
During her tenure at the Departments of Water Resources and General Services, Marvelli developed construction drawings for new state facilities and for the renovation of existing state-owned facilities in compliance with the California Building Standards Codes, Title 24, California Code of Regulations.
California’s Building Standards Code, in Title 24, California Code of Regulations, governs the design and construction of buildings throughout California. Improved safety, sustainability, accessibility, consistency, new technology and construction methods are paramount considerations during the development of building standards for publication in Title 24.
We welcome Ms. Marvelli to her new position and hope she understands the huge impact Building Codes have on Building – which is far beyond just the building process. As witnessed by anyone who followed the Feb 9 Energy Commission Stakeholders meeting on 2016 Part 6 Codes as they apply to Lighting Alterations.
