An update to the building energy code has been adopted by the State Building Code Council, moving Hawaii from the 2015 IECC to the 2018 IECC. The new code takes effect for State projects on December 14 of this year or earlier, and the date for other projects will depend on the adoption schedule in each county.
Get a head start on planning for these code updates by attending this webinar on the commercial requirements, presented by the Hawaii State Energy Office. Each webinar will provide an overview of code requirements with emphasis on the Hawaii amendments and updated requirements. Architects, engineers, project managers, county planning & permitting staff, developers and contractors are encouraged to attend.
A separate webinar will be held for low-rise residential requirements on May 12.
