What are the green building codes that California has adopted?



  1. 0 Votes

    There is a long draft of the new building standards available online here.  Among other things, the new standards require new plumbing to use 20% less water, construction sites to divert at least 50% of their waste by recycling, and the use of low-pollution paint, floors, and carpeting.  It also calls for energy systems to be inspected to ensure efficiency of a building’s heating, air conditioning, and other machinery.

    It also has a clause that allows local jurisdictions to adopt stricter codes.
