Code Transition: 2015 Washington & Seattle Energy Codes Seminar

The City of Seattle and Washington State are enacting significant changes to the 2015 energy codes, which build upon additional changes already incorporated into the 2015 IECC. With these new developments, it is critical that architects and their industry collaborators are thoroughly familiar with the constraints and opportunities afforded by these new codes. This seminar will examine each of the significant developments in the 2015 Washington State and City of Seattle energy codes, including changes related to building envelope, lighting power and controls, MEP systems and commissioning, and others topics. Speakers will also discuss important information about the implementation calendar and the impact of energy efficiency requirements on architectural and engineering design decisions.


Registration Close Date: Wednesday, May 4, 2016
