blog-8CALGreen: Commissioning & Energy Modeling – Getting Ready for 2014

In 2014, the CALGreen building code will be ramped up to include exceeding the energy model minimum by 25%. The AIA-OC Learning Unit Workshop, presented by VCA Green, will provide answers to the following questions:

• How can architects prepare for the new code changes?
• How can they better work with project teams?
• How can they drive value by enhancing services to clients?
Workshop Learning Objectives:
  1. Learn the new requirements for the 2014 building code and how design will be impacted.
  2. Explain what building commissioning is and when  the design team is required to address commissioning.
  3. Scrutinize energy modeling with the new code and identify opportunities project teams have to design to code and efficiency.
  4. Identify ways architects can enhance deliverables with the new code requirements.
