Conquer the Energy Code for Architects and Engineers: Residential

This Live Event happened on February 25, 2019 (7:00PM - 7:00PM EST)

The new Energy Code is now in effect! Conquering the Energy Code: Residential prepares architects and engineers in New York State to comply with the many new requirements in the 2015 NYS Energy Conservation Construction Code and design more energy-efficient buildings in the process. In an era of more stringent code enforcement, the course provides critical knowledge about significant changes, new provisions, and best practices to avoid objections and stalled projects.

“I learned a tremendous amount which I have been able to apply immediately. Although I have been involved in a Passive House project and have had Building Science consult on an indoor pool project, taking this class enhanced my knowledge and clarified how the energy code may be implemented in NY." —Conquering the Code student
