Urban Green Council, working in concert with NYSERDA and other partner organizations such as USGBC New York Upstate, invites all design professionals working in New York State to register for important classroom training. Based on the upcoming 2015 IECC, this course unveils the structure and rationale behind the energy code.

Architects and engineers will learn how to navigate the various pathways to compliance and how to incorporate best energy conservation practices into their projects. The courses translate the code into plain English, and include practical information about documentation requirements and progress inspections.

Energy Code Training for Architects and Engineers

Cost per person: $75

Course length: 8 hours

CEUs: 7, including GBCI: Approved for 7.0 CE hours,  AIA: Approved for 7.0 HSW/LU hours

Enter your comment Hello fellow NYS Builder: Across the nation, new 2012-2015 IECC air-sealing standards for new home construction are now being mandated. To stay ahead of the curve and exceed state mandated requirements, the AccuFrame® Energy Seal innovation offers you energy savings combined with labor management. Research conducted by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) realized that under ASTM e283 vast amounts of air penetrates the normal building envelope due to gaps between the OSB sheathing back-side and framing member surfaces. Air infiltration can deplete energy performance by up to 40% according to the Department of Energy. NYSERDA concluded that the AccuFrame® pliable gasket fills these problem areas to reduce air-infiltration in conventional stick-frame walls by 81% @ 50pa. The brief video below shows the easy installation of AccuFrame® Plus Energy Seal -- demonstrating how the advantages of achieving framing quality control and an effective continuous air-sealing solution -- is combined in one simple application. Document: Video: Now available at go search box- AccuFrame Plus Energy Seal and select 84 Lumber outlets. Sincerely, Michael Schettine President, Schettine Associates, Inc. Direct: (518) 852-1736
