Have you submitted an energy model to a building department to demonstrate code compliance? Now you can. In their goal to increase energy conservation the City of Boulder, CO is requiring new commercial construction projects to exceed ASHRAE 90.1-2010 by 30%, and 14% for residential projects.
Explore the progression of the energy code in the City of Boulder, examine the current code, and dive into three examples from a single site exploring the range of project aspects from multi-family residential, new construction, renovation, and addition.
The presentation will cover specific code language, the challenges of energy modeling for a new code requirement, modeling guidelines utilized to create a model for code compliance, results from three different project examples, and a summary of thoughts on code compliance energy simulation.
