When constructing modern society engineers, architects and designers are held to numerous codes and specifications that insure the design and implementation of quality infrastructure for the community. Locally, the greater Washoe County area abides by the requirements laid out in the RTC Orange Book. The purpose of the Orange Book is to fulfill the need for uniform rules governing public works construction performed in the 
majority of the populated areas of Northern Nevada. The Orange book was originally published in 1978 and the current addition was drafted in 2007.  As advances in construction methods and materials are made the need to update these documents follows. The RTC is currently updating the Orange Book and is looking to release a new version in the near future.
