California Green Building Codes – title 24 go mainstream

This effects remodeling too!

California’s are the strictest. “Although states on the East Coast are breathing down California’s neck, Title 24 is unparalleled in the rest of the country,” notes Asa Foss, LEED residential technical director with the U.S. Green Building Council.

What does this mean for anyone wanting to start a remodeling project here? “First, be aware of what Title 24 and the building code requires you to do,” Foss suggests. He is referring to the portion of the state’s building requirements commonly called CAL Green.

To assist their residents with achieving code compliance and sustainability, some cities in San Diego County have set up homeowner programs. “Our Build Green program provides resources at the permit counter to help homeowners design an efficient home, as well as community trainings like the one on May 11th at City Hall,” shares Lynn France, Chula Vista’s Office of Sustainability manager.
