Are you prepared to implement the impending new building requirements? The new energy code is slated to be approximately 25% more rigorous across climate zones to meet California's goal for all new homes to be Net Zero by 2020. Updates to CALGreen will likely include provisions for residential additions and major remodels, and GreenPoint Rated is aligning its program with these code changes.

As a residential building professional, it is important to be prepared. Be among the first to learn what you can expect. Nathan Krantz, Build It Green's Director of Technical Services, will give you an overview and get you started on the next generation of green homes!
