New Construction Guide offers a comprehensive, prescriptive approach


Increasing energy code stringency and owner demand for higher efficiency in buildings are challenging design teams to deliver high performance without adding costs. The New Construction Guide was designed to offer a comprehensive prescriptive approach to new commercial construction projects that achieves efficiencies up to 30% higher than many conventional buildings. It was also included in the USGBC’s LEED program as an option to earn Energy and Atmosphere credits.
