Many of us have been working for decades to push the energy codes toward higher performance. We've had some good success along the way, as state after state adopt more stringent codes. Unfortunately, in many regions we have a long, long way to go. Even in those places where the most stringent codes are in place, execution and enforcement are often weak. And, as for going beyond the code to achieve excellence -- forget it. Most mainstream builders are not in a position to go beyond the bare minimum, and the quality of our housing stock shows it.
The Compliance Project was launched to help solve some of these problems. The intent is to foster a higher level of compliance with current energy codes during the construction of new homes, and so reduce the energy consumption, carbon emissions, and environmental impact of our housing stock. Our goal is to fast-track improvements in the performance of U.S. residential construction by addressing economic, legal, and ethical short-comings in our construction industry.
We invite your inquiries and collaboration -- the project is structured to benefit forward-looking professionals who see the potential in speeding the implementation of advanced building codes.
