Green Construction Codes are Here - Now What?
Christopher E. Chwedyk, CSI
This year, the International Code Council (ICC) has released the 2012 International Green Construction Code (IgCC), which also references the ASHRAE 189.1 - Standard for the Design of High Performance Green Buildings. The purpose of this code is to allow for the 'overlay' regulation of green building construction as part of an integrated approach with the building and fire codes.
This seminar will trace the origins of the green codes, how they compare and differ from the rating systems that have been (and continue to be) used, and examine some of their main features. We will also discuss issues related to transitioning from a rating system, where enforcement was by third party
agencies, to a code that is enforced and inspected by building officials, and what that will mean for architects, engineers and specifiers in the preparation of construction documents.
