News Release: Governor appoints Olympia building leader to State Building Code Council
May 16, 2022
OLYMPIA…Gov. Jay Inslee has appointed Olympia building leader Daimon Doyle to the Washington State Building Code Council (SBCC).
A highly respected building professional and Life Director for the National Association of Home Builders, Doyle has worked in the residential construction industry for more than 30 years. He previously owned Viridian Northwest and Doyle Custom Homes.
“We’re proud Gov. Inslee selected Daimon Doyle to represent the residential construction industry on the Washington State Building Code Council,” said Greg Lane, Executive Vice President of the Building Industry Association of Washington. “BIAW nominated Daimon for his deep knowledge of residential construction. We believe his passion for supporting our work to build homes people can afford is critical to the council.
A commitment to green building and energy efficiency
Doyle is a Master Certified Green Professional, a Green Building Trainer at the National Association of Home Builders, a RESNET HERS Rater, and a certified verifier of the Energy Star, Built Green, and Indoor airPLUS programs.
In addition to his background in energy efficiency, he’s also a Certified Aging in Place Specialist, a past president of both BIAW and Olympia Master Builders and a Lifetime Director of OMB.
Appointment comes at critical time
Inslee appointed Doyle as part of a legal settlement after BIAW and the Associated General Contractors of Washington (AGC-WA) sued the governor for failing to follow state law. The governor previously appointed two individuals to represent the residential and commercial construction industry sectors without complying with state law.
“The SBCC makes important decisions that affect not only builders, but hundreds of thousands of potential and existing homeowners across our state,” Lane said. “We nominated three highly qualified individuals to represent our industry—and the governor this time complied with the legal requirement to appoint one of them.
“At a time when more than 85% of the state is priced out of purchasing homes, Washington can’t afford additional costs and increasing uncertainty,” he said. “Daimon will bring credible common sense to the council at a time when we desperately need it.”
The Building Industry Association of Washington is the voice of the housing industry as the state’s largest trade association with nearly 8,000 member companies. The association is dedicated to ensuring and enhancing the vitality of the building industry so more Washington families can enjoy the American Dream of owning a home. Learn more at: www.biaw.com
