HBAF Member, Ron Smith, will be missed. It was rare to attend an HBAF event and not see Ron's smiling face. He supported the building industry for decades. Our deepest sympathies are with Faye and her family.


Mr. Ronald Wayne Smith 77 passed away on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in Fayetteville, NC.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Lewis Smith and Mary Smith, and brother, Robert Smith.

He was retired MSGT. with U.S. Air Force having been stationed in Texas, Spain, Pope AFB, Myrtle Beach AFB, SC, Keesler AFB, Mississippi, and Alexandria, LA, and back to Pope AFB, NC, and a home builder that designed and built Olde Towne Village townhome community in the downtown historical area. Ronald graduated from Garland High School and received a Bachelor of Science degree from Southern Illinois University in Industrial Technology. He was known by all as a good samaritan, always willing to help family, friends, as well as strangers, were his true attributes.

Funeral service will be held at 11:00 AM Saturday, January 24, 2015 at Beards Chapel Baptist Church 409 Beards Chapel Loop Rd, Garland, NC by the Reverend Barry Helms. Burial will follow in the Sandhill Cemetery on Norris Rd., Garland, NC with full military honors.

Significant Changes to the 2015 International Codes
Wednesday, Feb. 25, 2-3 p.m.
Policy and Finance series

New homes are required by law to comply with state and local building codes and the standards referenced in those codes. Most jurisdictions that enforce a building code have adopted one or more of the family of International Codes (I-Codes) developed by the International Code Council (ICC). This webinar highlights significant changes to the 2015 editions of the I-Codes, particularly the International Residential Code (IRC) and International Building Code (IBC).
