  1. In a Design-Bid-Build project a code, in this case the NEC, changed from start of design to start of construction, Does the new iteration of the Code need to be used or the iteration of the code referenced in the specifications is the one to be enforced?
  2. The particular situation started design on 2010 and the construction contract was awarded in '19.  The facility designer used 2008 NEC.  Shall the contract states to use NEC 2017 or shall the contractor use NEC 2017?
