Commercial construction is very diverse—from small retail shops and convenience stores to massive high rise condos and stadiums. For the Florida Building Code, Energy Conservation, 5 th Edition (2014), there are four paths for energy code compliance allowed in varying degrees of complexity and difficulty from which contractors may choose. This course provides a detailed mapping of the ASHRAE-base and the two IECC-base compliance paths.
This course is designed for enforcement professionals, inspectors, architects, engineers, contractors or builders and construction trades. Trades include, but are not limited to, HVAC contractors, electricians, plumbers, insulators and air sealers. It is recommended to have participants who are involved in planning and design and/or participants who will be constructing on‐site. It is also recommended that code officials attend the training to provide information on how new code requirements will be verified.
The participant will learn:
- To list the 4 primary compliance paths in FBC EC for Commercial Buildings.
- To recognize compliance paths in ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and IECC 2012 as used in FBC EC.
- To describe the sub-paths that apply to envelope, HVAC/mechanical, lighting or building performance aspects of the code.
