Event Prices: 
General Admission
$99

The new Energy Code is now in effect! Conquering the Energy Code: Residential prepares architects and engineers in New York State to comply with the many new requirements in the 2015 NYS Energy Conservation Construction 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.

Demystify New York State's 2015 Energy Conservation Construction Code with Conquer the Code, a training course to help architects and engineers design more energy-efficient buildings. In an era of improved code enforcement, the course provides critical knowledge about significant changes, new provisions, and best practices to avoid objections and stalled projects. Attend one of our pilot courses for a first look at the new energy code and to understand what it means for your daily work.

Each course is led by a certified instructor with more than five years of professional architecture or engineering experience, a passion for sustainability, and in-depth knowledge of the green building industry. Learn how to conquer the energy code from these expert designers of commercial, institutional, industrial, single-family and/or multi-family buildings that exceed energy code requirements.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

Conquer the Code starts with the basics of energy code design and construction requirements, teaches the breadth of the residential/commercial provisions and ends with clarification of the documentation and inspection processes.

The course covers:

  • All mandatory prescriptive requirements and the context behind these provisions

  • How to navigate the code and find relevant information
  • How to evaluate and select the right compliance path for various projects
  • What documentation is needed to show compliance
  • What to expect at progress inspections
  • How to improve design team communication to reduce barriers to compliance

The class is not intended for people who want to learn energy modeling or how to use COMcheck or REScheck, but will teach you the prescriptive requirements that underlie those programs.
