Event Description

Conquering the Energy Code: Residential prepares architects and engineers in New York State to comply with the many requirements in the 2015 NYS Code and design more energy-efficient buildings in the process. In an era of more stringent code enforcement, the course provides critical knowledge about significant changes, new provisions, and best practices to avoid objections and stalled projects.

“I learned a tremendous amount which I have been able to apply immediately. Although I have been involved in a Passive House project and have had Building Science consult on an indoor pool project, taking this class enhanced my knowledge and clarified how the energy code may be implemented in NY." —Conquering the Code student

By the end of the course, participants will:

  • Understand the structure and rationale behind the energy code, and know how to navigate it;
  • Be able to differentiate the various compliance pathways and understand the requirements for compliance on residential projects;
  • Understand the interdependence of the building envelope, mechanical and lighting systems and their impacts on energy consumption;
  • Know what to expect at progress inspections;
  • Sharpen communications and coordination with clients, the design team, code officials and the construction team to remove barriers to compliance.
