GBA’s Andrew Burt earns prestigious ICC Master Code Professional certification

Posted on Posted in Insight

Andrew Burt, Building Official for GBA Mission Critical, has earned the prestigious International Code Council’s (ICC) Master Code Professional (MCP) designation. This achievement is the highest level of Code Council certification and the “gold standard” for demonstrating proficiency in the code profession. Even though the Council has certified thousands of individuals, less than 900 professionals worldwide have attained this high level of achievement.

To become an MCP, a candidate must first earn ten core ICC certifications plus an additional number of elective ICC certifications. Typical MCPs hold 17 or more ICC certifications. Certified individuals must complete an additional 60 hours of Continuing Education Units every three years to maintain active status. MCPs are typically responsible for all technical and management aspects of code enforcement with duties that range from the management of a code enforcement department to the supervision of inspectors and plan reviewers.

Andrew leads the Code Service team from the newly established GBA – Columbia, Missouri office. While GBA has provided Code Services for many years, due to an influx of work at the University of Missouri – Columbia, the group has grown significantly and prompted the opening of the new GBA office location.

“We are so proud of Andy for earning this outstanding achievement,” said Doug Van Meter, GBA Principal/Senior Vice President – Mission Critical.  “Andy’s work ethic and leadership skills account for much of the success of GBA’s involvement with the NextGen Precision Health Facility, which was completed in 2021. Andy has a bright future with GBA, and we look forward to the continued growth of this area.”
