Description

Successful Site Design and MI Energy Code


Course Description

While land developers are seeking to maximize their land use and minimize their development costs, governmental regulations are applying pressures on budgets that can kill a project. Architects are being relied upon to steer site decisions and engineering professionals in order to produce cost-effective and functional designs that meet the myriad of growing municipal requirements. 

The new code reflects several changes in energy efficiency for the 2015 Michigan Energy Code. Generally, the purpose of these changes is to conserve energy through improved efficiency in envelope design, mechanical systems, lighting, and new materials and techniques. It sets the baseline for the building envelope, systems, and equipment.

This course applies 6 hours towards Plan Review credit.
