Building Codes

  • IECC (International Energy Conservation Code): provided by MADCAD.com through the subscription of OSU: http://www.madcad.com/library/IECC-12/ For climate zones refer to Chapter 3: General Requirements, Section C301. For envelope requirements for commercial buildings refer to Chapter 4: Commercial Energy Efficiency, Section C402. For equipment efficiencies in commercial buildings, refer to Section C403. For electric power allowances in commercial buildings, refer to Section C405.
  • For residential buildings, also refer to IECC (above) and its climate zones. For envelope requirements refer to Chapter 4: Residential Energy Efficiency, Section R402. For systems, refer to Section R403. For electrical power & lighting systems, refer to Section R404.
  • IMC (International Mechanical Code): provided by MADCAD.com through the subscription of OSU: http://www.madcad.com/library/IMC-12/

Standards

  • ASHRAE 55-2010: Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy, provided by MADCAD.com through the subscription of OSU: http://www.madcad.com/library/ASHRAE-55-10/
  • ASHRAE 62.1-2010: Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality, provided by MADCAD.com through the subscription of OSU: http://www.madcad.com/library/ASHRAE-62.1-10/ For minimum ventilation rates in breathing zones, refer to Chapter 6: Procedures, Section 6.2.
