Construction projects in the District of Columbia are required to comply with the DC Energy Conservation Code; and at 10,000 square feet or greater, all projects must comply with the International Green Construction Code or Green Building Act. During this lecture, participants will gain insight into the critical steps for compliance including permit submittal requirements (e.g. energy verification sheet, LEED documentation, energy model), the inspection process, and certificate of occupancy requirements. Presenters will also discuss the best practices for moving through the compliance process with ease.Presenters:David Epley is the Green Building and Sustainability Program Manager at the District of Columbia Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA).
