CALGreen requires commissioning for all new construction over 10,000 square feet. New Energy Code (Title 24) regulations, which are included within CALGreen, include requirements that apply regardless of building size. Code does not specify exactly how commissioning is to be accomplished, and the burden of compliance falls largely on architects, engineers, construction managers and building owners.
In an era when the Governor and the legislature are setting the goal of a 50 percent increase in existing building efficiency by 2030, it can be both short-sighted and costly to skimp on commissioning.
Case histories will be incorporated throughout, covering both “best”and “worst” practices, with lessons learned from more than 600 buildings. The session will also include hands-on activities, quizzes and opportunity for discussion.

informative intro to the subject and not too
“Good introduction to the new
code. Clear presentation and knowledgeable.”

was A+. Seminar simplified necessary review of CALGreen by
focusing on main points and providing context.”
“I’ve learned a general
overview of the new CALGreen building code and how to use
it for new construction of residential and commercial
facilities. I know what I need to do to comply with Tier 1

references in using and implementing the code. This was an
excellent seminar. I learned so much in this presentation

presentation was practical and useful to the building
contractor, as well as to the ‘novice’ who
