Building Science: Energy Code Standards & Trends
July 26 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm CDT
Are you a local building official or work on building and energy codes? Want to understand the latest standards and trends? Join MEC for a FREE training course!
Cities in our region are in process of adopting more recent energy codes, so MEC is hosting a FREE building science & energy codes training. The course is valued at $200+ and attendees are eligible for up to 4 Continuing Education Hours.
This course provides an overview of the history of the commercial energy codes in the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) and the development of multiple compliance paths. It provides a common understanding of the thermal envelope (including the impact of windows, doors, and skylights), what is included in insulation installation grading, and advanced framing techniques. The instructor will also cover heating, cooling, and mechanical ventilation systems along with a discussion of the importance of duct tightness. Lighting, appliance, and clean energy contributions will also be discussed.
When: Tuesday, July 26, 8am-12pm
Where: Plexpod Westport Commons – 300 East 39th Street, Kansas City, MO 64111 – Room 1L
