Live By The Code™ 

Live by the Code means many things to many people. Living by the code includes loyalty, honesty, faithfulness and the willingness to protect, defend, and support another member of your team. To us, living by the code is "Standing up for what you believe in." Those of us who live this way are committed to a career and lifestyle that upholds the well-being of their fellow man. We are all members of a global team.

Our codes and formal “rules” provide the background for civilized living. The plumbing and mechanical codes, and the men and women involved in enforcing them, are dedicated to protecting the public's health and safety. These professionals spend years learning and applying the codes uniformly in our communities and building safe and responsible homes, workplaces and educational structures for existing and future generations. We can all share this philosophy: We can accomplish greater things together than we can individually.
