Services Energy Code Support Programs
Energy codes and standards set minimum efficiency requirements for new and renovated residential and commercial buildings. The energy code is a guide to reductions in energy use and emissions over the life of a building. Energy codes are a subset of building codes, which establish baseline requirements and govern building construction.
Buildings that comply with energy codes are more comfortable and cost-effective to operate and reduce reliance on foreign energy sources, positivel impacting national security.
To realize benefits associated with energy codes, it is necessary to ensure a building complies with the code. Effective compliance and enforcement unlocks deeper energy savings, reduced costs, higher building resale value, and minimized environmental impact.
IBTS energy code experts can help you determine if your project complies with your local energy code in these ways:
- Plan review – We can review your building plans in person or remotely before construction.
- Site inspection – Contact us to schedule an on-site inspection of your project in the construction phase.
- Education and Training – Our experts can use findings associated with your project as a way to build your knowledge of energy code compliance. We can also provide a more general training for your local code officials, architects, engineers, builders, and others interested in learning about the energy code.
- Energy code inspectors – IBTS can provide a local resource to develop and/or support your energy code compliance and enforcement protocol
