Energy Code Compliance

Did you know that there are many ways to meet your local energy code?

Using an energy model to demonstrate energy code compliance is becoming a very popular method, as it can often save a project thousands of dollars.

An energy model allows the design team to have a great amount of flexibility in meeting prescriptive code requirements.  Energetics is an expert in finding the best way for projects to meet their local energy codes, including the 2009 IECC, 2012 IECC, 2015 IECC, 2018 IECC, and other local jurisdictions.

How does it work?

We build two models — one representing the design, and one representing the code baseline. Then we write a report that you submit with your permit documents, and the design team does not need to submit COMCheck or RESCheck reports.

Denver Green Buildings Ordinance

If you are building in Denver, you must also comply with Denver’s Green Building Ordinance.  Our energy code compliance consulting and modeling includes analysis of the different options for compliance, including using energy savings.  We can help determine the best compliance option for your project, and assist with the required documentation, from site development plan (SDP) through permit and construction documents.

Boulder, Colorado

If you are building a commercial or multifamily project in Boulder, Colorado, you are very likely to be required to document energy code compliance with an energy model.  Boulder has one of the most stringent energy codes in the country, with very aggressive energy goals.  Through early energy analysis and modeling, our team can help you determine the best path to compliance through the design process, and provide all required documentation at the time of permit.
