Crushing the Code New York State: Residential is an online course that prepares building and design professionals in New York State to comply with the many requirements in the 2020 ECCCNYS 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.
By the end of this full-day course, participants will:
- Understand the structure and rationale behind the residential energy code, including the new provisions of the 2020 ECCCNYS;
- Differentiate between the various compliance pathways, including required testing and documentation;
- Recognize the interdependence of the building envelope, mechanical and lighting systems and their impacts on energy code compliance;
- Identify areas for improved project communication and coordination to support compliance.
Note: This course is not intended for those who want to learn energy modeling or how to use COMcheck or REScheck, but will teach you the prescriptive requirements that underlie those programs.
Each Crushing the Code NYS online course is live and interactive, led by a certified instructor with more than seven years of professional building or design experience, a passion for sustainability, and in-depth knowledge of the green building industry.
