TITLE 24

California Energy Commissions mandates that all newly constructed, existing buildings with additions and/or alterations within California comply with the Building Energy Efficiency standards highlighted within Title 24, Part 6.

Energy Compliance forms are required during submission of plans and permitting process to the California Building department. To show compliance, the most up-to-date and complex computer software certified by the California energy commissions are used to perform and simulate the calculations.

These calculations are based upon several inputs such as wall and roof insulation types, water heater and AC unit types, alongside fenestration sizes and characteristics, to name a few. We work diligently to make sure your project design is optimal, by ensuring compliance while being cost effective. Our engineers worked on hundreds of projects every year and have taken special care for each case, and we will assure you that yours will be as quick, efficient and affordable.
