Code Official Successful Site Design and Michigan Energy Code

Instructor:  Wayde Hoppe & J. MacDowell

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.

Code Official Construction Documents for Successful Projects

Instructor:  Wayde Hoppe

A well prepared and accurate technical specification can be easily undone if Divisions 00 and 01 of the project manual are deficient. The ‘front-end’ specification, or general conditions, is the tool that directs the contractor from the day he is introduced to the project through to completion. Without it, the architect, the client, and the builder are vulnerable to being sadly surprised. A well written ‘front-end’ can protect the architect and the builder from accusations of neglect, cost over-runs, demands for an expansion of the scope and much more. This course will teach the many elements of the front-end specification that are essential to success.

After Completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Be able to integrate design concepts with current codes and regulations.
  • Translate the intentions and goals of the customer into a safe and cost-effective project.
  • Understand and be able to comply with federal laws if the project is paid for with governmental funds.
  • Specify and identify any code related issues or requirements in order to facilitate proper construction.
