Part 1- Issues and Challenges of the Current Code

There are quite a number of challenges in the existing codes: glazing issues, minor architectural changes that will trigger major electrical work, lack of uniformity among plan checking, lack of training by installers, inspectors, and even architects. This session will review challenges with the current code including 2017 changes; and unravel headaches for the owners, architects, inspectors, and installers. Part 1 is a precursor to Part 2 a review of the 2018 changes to the codes.

Learning Objectives:

1.Identify current Green Code and Title-24 code issues
2.Review how 2017 changes impacted design
3.Identify the coordination issues with all other disciplines from the 2017 changes
4.Discuss what are the headaches, cost impacts, uniformity, and consistency in plan check and inspections due to the 2017 code changes
