Energy Code

Implementing energy codes is a cost-effective way for cities and local governments to cut carbon emissions, eliminate energy waste, improve comfort and health for building occupants, and increase housing affordability by reducing the ongoing energy burden for owners and renters. The IECC is the most widely adopted model energy code by local jurisdictions in the United States. 

Implementation of energy codes is generally carried out by state and local agencies that are responsible for code compliance, enforcement, and training. These activities ensure that new construction meets the required level of efficiency. Agencies in different cities pursue varying methods of implementation and different levels of enforcement activity. 

There are multiple methods of complying with the International Energy Code including, but not limited to, total building compliance, approved 3rd party software tools and prescriptive methods. Masterplan provides third-party energy code plan review and inspections along with onsite inspections for compliance with envelope inspections, insulation inspections, lighting and mechanical inspections and final inspections.    

Masterplan energy code consulting helps clients by delivering deeper energy savings, reduced costs, higher building resale value, and minimized environmental impact.
