Episode #1: Emerging Energy Code Insights
Updated: May 1, 2019
As governments of all scales consider options for meeting deep greenhouse gas reduction goals, attention has turned to how to achieve higher performance design from new construction in the building sector, which is responsible for more than 40% of emissions in most urban areas. In Texas specifically, the 2015 IECC has been a game changer and a huge learning curve for designers and builders alike.
In this episode Jason shares his experiences and helps us understand the opportunities for various building officials, builders and contractors to improve their understanding of the codes, the building science behind the codes and, ultimately, the efficiency of the facilities they build and inspect.
