Green Building Code Released – Open for Public Review

On Monday, March 15 2010, the International Code Council (ICC) released a green building code proposal, the International Green Construction Code (IGCC) Public Version 1.0, for public review.While NBI is not a sponsor of the IGCC proposal several NBI staff members are active in its development process and have contributed to portions such as the metering section. It is also worth noting that the energy portion (Chapter 6) in large part builds on the NBI/AIA/DOE proposals for the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and on Core Performance as the prescriptive path.The IGCC emphasizes building performance, including features such as a requirement for building system performance verification and building owner education to ensure the best energy-efficient practices. IGCC public comment process
