    • Keys to successful green building code implementation1. Engage key constituents early on.2. Ensure compliance with federal preemption.3. Tailor the code to your jurisdiction.4. Provide training to code officials.5. Educate about new codes.
    • Early Green Building “Codes”The D.C. Green Building Act of 2006 • Starting January 1, 2012 privately-owned projects must be LEED certified • Applicant must provide “performance bond” • “All or part of the performance bond shall be forfeited to the District and deposited in the Green Building Fund if the building fails to meet the verification requirements . . . .”
    • LEED Is NOT A Code LEED certification Codes -Greening the Codes, USGBC
    • Early Green Building Codes CALGreen • Effective January 1, 2011 • Mandatory Baseline Standards – 20 percent water reduction – 50 percent salvage/recycling – Benchmarking • Voluntary Tier I and II Standards
    • Remember: keep yourconstituents happy.Develop building industrysupport early on.Otherwise…
    • Challenges to Green Building Codes Federal preemption: "A standard prescribed or established under section 6313(a) of this title shall, beginning on the effective date of such standard, supersede any State or local regulation concerning the energy efficiency or energy use of a product for which a standard is prescribed or established pursuant to such section.” -National Appliance Energy Conservation Act
    • Challenges to Green Building Codes Albuquerque Energy Conservation Code 1. The building must achieve LEED certification; 2. The proposed building must be 30 percent more energy efficient than a baseline building; or 3. The Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system and equipment must comply with minimum energy efficiency standards.
    • Challenges to Green Building Codes Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (ACHRI) v. City of Albuquerque "The Court concludes that the prescriptive provisions of Volume I requiring the use of heating, ventilation, or air conditioning products or water heaters with energy efficiency standards more stringent than federal standards are regulations that concern the energy efficiency of covered products and, therefore, are preempted as a matter of law." -Judge Vazquez, U.S. District Court District of New Mexico
    • Challenges to Green Building Codes Exception to National Appliance Energy Conservation Act Preemption • 42 U.S.C. § 6297 (f)(3) • 7 prong test • Essentially a building code exception
    • Challenges to Green Building Codes Washington State Energy Code • Chapter 9 – residential energy efficiency requirements • Table 9 offers many options for compliance
    • Challenges to Green Building Codes BIAW et al. v. Washington State Building Code Council • Washington Energy Code passed seven prong test • Unlike Albuquerque case, Washington did not include preempted, performance-based alternatives. • “Further, there appear to be substantial differences in the Albuquerque code and Washington’s code.”
    • THE INTERNATIONAL GREEN CONSTRUCTION CODEBACKROUND AND DEVELOPMENT• COPYWRITED BY THE INTERNATIONAL CODE COUNCIL, INC WITH COOPERATING SPONSORSHIP OF THE AIA AND ASTM• BASED ON ASHRAE / USGBC / IES STANDARD 189.1 – 2009 STANDARD FOR THE DESIGN OF HIGH PERFORMANCE GREEN BUILDINGS EXCEPT LOW-RISE RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS• ASHRAE / USGBC / IES 189.1 – 2009 IS A JURISDICTIONAL COMPLIANCE OPTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL GREEN CONSTRUCTION CODE• INTENDED TO SUPPLEMENT OTHER EXISTING INTERNATIONAL CODES INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE INTERNATIONAL FUEL GAS CODE INTERNATIONAL MECHANICAL CODE INTERNATIONAL PLUMBING CODE INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY MAINTENANCE CODE INTERNATIONAL FIRE CODE INTERNATIONAL ENERGY CONSERVATION CODE INTERNATIONAL ZONING CODE THE KOBET CHEATHAM GROUP
    • THE INTERNATIONAL GREEN CONSTRUCTION CODEBACKROUND AND DEVELOPMENTPublic Version 1.0 of the International Green Construction Code wasdeveloped in 2010 by the Sustainable Building Technology Committee (SBTC)appointed by the ICC Board of Directors, with the American Institute of Architectsand ASTM International as Cooperating SponsorsPublic Version 2.0 of the International Green Construction Code was issuedon November 3, 2010 after the Public Comments submitted to Public Version 1.0were considered by the IGCC Public Comment Committee at the PublicHearings held in Rosemont, IL, August 14 – 21, 20102012 International Green Construction Code will be a result of revisions toPublic Version 2.0. Revisions will be in the form of code changes which will beprocessed in accordance with ICC’s Code Development Process (as outlined inCouncil Policy #28) comprised of Code Development and Final Action Hearingsin 2011. The 2012 IGCC is scheduled for release in March 2012. THE KOBET CHEATHAM GROUP
    • THE INTERNATIONAL GREEN CONSTRUCTION CODEThe International Green Construction Code Public Version 2.0 isavailable as a resource document to guide adoption and use byjurisdictions internationally. Its use within a governmental jurisdiction isintended to be accomplished through adoption by reference inaccordance with proceedings establishing the jurisdictions laws. At thetime of adoption, jurisdictions should insert the appropriate informationin provisions requiring specific local information, such as the name ofthe adopting jurisdiction: THE KOBET CHEATHAM GROUP
    • THE INTERNATIONAL GREEN CONSTRUCTION CODE TABLE 302.1 REQUIREMENTS DETERMINED BY THE JURISDICTIONChapter 3 is the core of theInternational Green ConstructionCode. It is formatted to facilitate thecustomization of the code toaddress local issues, provideoptions for construction whichexceed the minimum requirementsof the code and provide for theimplementation of best practices.Table 302.1 which addressesjurisdictional choices and Table303.1 which introduces the conceptof project electives are fundamentalto the understanding and use of theCode.
