Hello Puget Sound ASHRAE members! Even though the 2015 Washington State Energy Code may still feel new, the development of the next Code is about to be underway! Code change proposals are due to the State Building Code Council by March 2018. Our local Codes are developed through a combination of national changes brought down through the model codes as well as code change proposals by local professionals. With your feedback and ideas, we can help to create a more user friendly, enforceable, and energy efficient Code.
For more information and to download a copy of the forms, see the State Building Code Council’s website: https://fortress.wa.gov/ga/apps/sbcc/Page.aspx?nid=55
