2016 Building Efficiency Standards:
Changes and Challenges
“A definite must for the code user arena. Great preparation for all players, prepping for the changes, that will avoid surprises.”
California’s building efficiency standards have been updated, with changes that will become mandatory in January 2017. This seminar will cover what’s new in Title 24 for both residential and non-residential buildings, from high performance walls and attics to lighting and lighting controls.
The session will also review challenges that have resulted in implementing the 2013 standards, strategies for addressing them, and solutions to these challenges that may be included in the recent revisions.
With each cycle, California's Energy Code is moving closer toward the goal of ZNE for all new construction. It's vital for you to stay up to date with its evolution.
Mandates for efficiency in existing buildings are expanding. Retrofits will require code compliance. Don't get caught by surprise.
