Breaking Down the New Code: 2018 IECC Commercial Training for Design Professionals 

This training session emphasizes the architectural elements of the code in Section C402 along with building science principles and low energy design concepts. Highlights of chapters C403 through C408 were covered. The session highlights changes between the 2009 IECC and 2018 IECC and will also highlight where ASHRAE 90.1-2016 differs from 2018 IECC. The training is most relevant to architects but also provides valuable information for engineers, developers, and code officials.

Philadelphia Energy Code Changes for Additions and Alterations

Interested in how the new energy codes in Philadelphia affect commercial additions and alterations? This 2-hour session for specific energy code changes for additions and alterations with an emphasis on tenant fit outs in large commercial office buildings. The training includes information on other code sections including 2018 IBC that have a significant impact on code compliance in commercial alterations and additions. This training is targeted at commercial building owners and managers including members of the Philadelphia 2030 District. Architects and engineers that work with owners and managers on tenant improvement projects will also find value in the program.


Energy Modeling Training for Project Managers and Code Officials - Part 1: Energy Code Compliance

This training focuses on compliance with ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2016 code using Appendix G Performance Rating Method to minimize documentation for above code programs, such as LEED (using Alternative Compliance Path Pilot Credit 111 and likely to be the standard reference for LEED v4.1).

Energy Modeling Training for Project Managers and Code Officials - Part 2: Beyond Code Workshop

This training focuses on developing a practical understanding of current energy modeling programs and metrics, and will present ideal work-flow integration of energy analysis in a typical project schedule based on ASHRAE Standard 209, which defines an integrated energy modeling standard within the design process. Participants will be able to understand and apply early design workflows that provide energy performance feedback for projects that seek to meet or exceed the energy code.


Beyond-Code Standards in Market-Rate Commercial Construction: How Does Philadelphia's New Energy Code Compare? 

This session is focused on explaining a crosswalk document of 2018 IECC and various beyond-code standards with an emphasis on the standards commonly used in market-rate housing.

Beyond-Code Standards in Affordable Housing: How Does Philadelphia's New Energy Code Compare? 

This session is focused on explaining a crosswalk document of 2018 IECC and various beyond-code standards with an emphasis on the standards commonly used in affordable housing.


Common Areas of Non-Compliance in Energy Code Inspections

Are you working on a project that must comply with commercial provisions of the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC)? This training is focused on common areas of noncompliance with the commercial provisions of the 2018 IECC as observed in on-site inspections. The training uses site photos from the field and COMCheck reports to demonstrate non-compliant vs. compliant installations. 

This training is applicable to design professionals, contractors, code officials, and service providers who want to ensure that their projects are compliant with the commercial provisions of the 2018 IECC.
