The Board of Housing and Community Development at the Department of Housing and Community Development promulgates regulations for industrialized buildings (IB), often referred to as modular buildings, through the Industrialized Building Safety Regulations (IBSR). The IBSR provides for the administration and enforcement of uniform statewide standards and includes the model codes and standards the IBs must meet. IBs are built in a factory and may contain concealed components, such as structural systems, wiring, plumbing and mechanical ductwork to mention a few.
