  • CALGREEN CODE UPDATE CRANKS UP AGAIN

    Posted: March 25, 2014 | Posted by Crystal Whitfield | No Comments

    Next Thursday, March 13, the California Building Standards Commission GREEN Code Advisory Committee will hear, discuss and deliberate proposed actions for the next building code update.

    As required by industry-sponsored legislation, state agencies proposing to amend the state building codes must first have their code-change proposal heard by at least one of the BSC’s Code Advisory Committees (CAC).   These advisory committees then provide the proposing agency and the commission with advice on whether the code-change should be rejected, approved or approved with amendments.

    Industry has voting representatives on each of these Committees.  Issues of immediate note will be BSC’s electric vehicle readiness standards, however your review and input is needed to make sure other issues of consequence are noted.

    Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD 05/13) – Amend the triennial edition of the 2013 California Green Building Standards Code, Title 24, Part 11. 

    California Building Standards Commission (BSC 06/13) – Amend the triennial edition of the 2013 California Green Building Standards Code, Title 24, Part 11.

    Division of the State Architect – Structural Safety (DSA/SS 02/13) – Amend the triennial edition of the 2013 California Green Building Standards Code, Title 24, Part 11.

    The committee will recommend to “Approve, Disapprove, Approve as amended, or Further Study as required” on each proposal. Industry input is critical.  Please share with interested parties and experts at your company and/or association and provide feedback to us by replying to this email, or directly to the BSC.
