Learn the Keys to "Cracking the Code"

Via the American Institute for Architects New York Chapter ...

WHAT:  A four-hour course to 
            familiarize architects and 
            engineers with the
            ECCCNYS-2010 and Energy
            Conservation Code of NYC
            (Local Law 1 - 2011).
WHEN: Friday, July 27, 8:00AM - 12:00PM

WHERE: Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place

The 2010 Energy Conservation Construction Code of New York State (ECCCNYS-2010), effective December 28, 2010, is now mandatory throughout New York State. The code regulates the design and construction of buildings for the effective use of energy.

Urban Green Council and The New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects have developed a four-hour course to familiarize architects and engineers with the ECCCNYS-2010, the fundamentals of low energy design, and the processes available to demonstrate compliance.

The course will address commercial buildings, including residential buildings over three stories. It will also address the Energy Conservation Code of New York City (Local Law 1 - 2011), which is more stringent than the State code. ANSI/ ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1 – 2007, an alternative compliance pathway for meeting the requirements of ECCCNYS - 2010, will be referenced, but not covered in detail.

This program is funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).
