Moving from 2006 to 2009 IECC in Commercial Buildings; A Primer for Designers, Builders, and Code Officials
On January 1, 2013, the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) became a requirement in the State of South Carolina, replacing the 2006 version. The South Carolina Energy Office is offering two training classes for architects, engineers and codes officials to help make the transition to the new code compliance. Each class will go into detail about the 2009 IECC and how it relates to the International Building Code and will outline major differences between the 2009 IECC and the 2006 version. The course will also provide an introduction to ASHRAE 90.1- 2007, the reference standard cited by the IECC as an additional path to demonstrate energy code compliance. The course will introduce various tools available for use by both the design professional and code official to demonstrate code compliance and to stay abreast of the latest code changes and best practices for design, review and inspection of building construction for
IECC compliance. Finally the course will provide a brief discussion of where future editions of energy codes are headed and conclude with a short question and answer session. Continuing education credit for building code officials has been applied for through the SC Building Codes Council. AIA and GBCI credits have been applied for through the US Green Building Council- SC Chapter. Thank you to the USGBC-SC for their support of this program. For more information about their programs, visit: http://www.usgbcsc.org/
