2019 Title 24, Part 6 Essentials — Nonresidential: Introduction to Modeling
2019 Title 24, Part 6 Essentials — Nonresidential: Introduction to Modeling thumbnail
This three-hour online "virtual-classroom" training experience answers the question: “Why bother with the modeling to demonstrate compliance with California’s 2019 Nonresidential Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Energy Code or Title 24, Part 6)?” This course does NOT address how to use modeling software or include any hands-on work with the software. Rather, it is designed for individuals who are uncertain of the important role that modeling can play in complying with the Energy Code. Specifically, it illustrates the benefits of using the Performance Approach to compliance and how approved modeling software lets you avoid selected Prescriptive requirements by making trade-offs between building features that are “better and worse” than Prescriptive. Course objectives include: Compare the Prescriptive and Performance approaches to compliance with the 2019 Energy Code; Describe, in general terms, how Performance modeling works and what it produces; Use the Standards Joint Appendix JA4 to determine how alternative wall assemblies compare to residential Prescriptive requirements of the 2019 Energy Code; Given an example nonresidential project, identify a set of “trade-offs” among measures that likely will comply with the 2019 Energy Code using the Performance approach.

Gina Rodda of Gabel Energy, along with her guest speaker Sally Blair from NORESCO, want you to join the conversation on the new Certificate of Compliance forms for nonresidential, high-rise multifamily and hotel/motel buildings (NRCC). These new redesigned forms are “dynamic,” with integrated code logic and the ability to expand based on the project’s scope of work. And they are required for applicable projects permitted under the 2019 Energy Code. Discussion topics include: the overarching structure behind the forms and how best to use them; tips and trick to be successful with these new dynamic forms, such as which software to use to open them, how to import the forms in CAD and other troubleshooting solutions; how a new construction or alteration project scope will determine how the form adapts to support the code requirements and dictate which inputs are required to document compliance; and where to go for more guidance via Energy Code Ace, the California Energy Commission, or Energy Soft (if EnergyPro software is used).

Decoding 2019 Alterations: Let’s Talk Nonresidential Indoor Lighting
Decoding 2019 Alterations: Let’s Talk Nonresidential Indoor Lighting thumbnail
Gina Rodda of Gabel Energy, along with her guest speaker Mike Hicks, Project Manager at IES, Inc., want you to join the conversation on the choices you have for showing compliance with the 2019 Energy Code for nonresidential indoor lighting alteration projects. Determining a pathway to compliance for these types of projects can be challenging if you don’t understand the triggers and options available. Let us help you feel confident in deciding which compliance option is best for your projects. We will discuss: When a lighting alteration project triggers (and does not trigger) compliance with the Energy Code; audit tips and tricks supporting compliance pathways to minimize existing lighting control changes; all the compliance pathways available under the alteration requirements of the 2019 Energy Code and the advantages of each approach; and Documenting compliance with the “new” Certificate of Compliance (NRCC-LTI-E); Certificate of Installation (NRCI); and the acceptance testing requirements via the Certificate of Acceptance (NRCA) including the role of a Certified Acceptance Test Technician (ATT).

Decoding 2019 Alterations: Let’s Talk Residential HVAC
Decoding 2019 Alterations: Let’s Talk Residential HVAC thumbnail
Gina Rodda of Gabel Energy, along with her guest speaker Bruce Cheney, owner of Anchors Aweigh Energy, want you to join the conversation on Residential HVAC alterations under California’s 2019 Energy Code. Requirements for alterations vary based on the extent of work being done ─ those for simply replacing a furnace are different than those for doing a complete overhaul of the indoor, outdoor and duct systems, for example. We will look at how the Energy Code applies when changing fuel source (natural gas to electric or vice versa) or when remodeling (e.g., kitchen hood and bathroom local exhaust). Discussion topics include: Triggers associated with heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) changeouts, upgrades and fuel switching alterations; HERS measures that apply to various scopes of work such as repairing an existing system or replacing an entire HVAC system, including ducting; How remodeling various rooms, such as a kitchen or bathroom, may trigger ventilation requirements; and Documenting compliance via the Certificate of Compliance (CF1R) for all scenarios, and how to use the Project Status Report (PSR) to help manage the installation and verification documentation requirements (CF2R/CF3R).

Decoding Nonresidential Compliance: Let's Talk Virtual Assistance
Decoding Nonresidential Compliance: Let's Talk Virtual Assistance thumbnail
Gina Rodda of Gabel Energy, along with her guest speaker Sally Blair, Program Director at NORESCO, invite you to join the conversation on how nonresidential project teams can use the new Virtual Compliance Assistant tool from Energy Code Ace to start and finish compliance documents online. Set the scope of work and assign energy compliance tasks during schematic design for the design team, and then use the Virtual Compliance Assistant to assist design considerations for design development. Verify construction documents are good to go then print the Certificate of Compliance forms (NRCC) to submit for permit. Use the project information saved in the Virtual Compliance Assistant to assist submittal review and assign the field compliance documentation requirements (NRCI, NRCA, NRCV) during the construction administrative phase of the project. We will discuss: tips and tricks on determining how the project’s scope of work determines which compliance forms are required; common information needed to complete compliance forms; how to break down a project so that selections of New Construction, Addition or Alteration make sense to the project team; and how to get a form that says “Complies” so it can be submitted for permit.
