What owners and managers need to understand is that energy standards are not stagnant. Standards are modified every three years as technologies for energy conservation improve. New Tile 24 standards do not exempt existing buildings. This applies to all residential and non-residential buildings and businesses. Inaccurate and/or changes to energy calculations can cause a facility to fail to satisfy the current energy standards. K2D experts will meticulously review the design of your facility and check whether all energy calculations are accurate and ensure that the building meets all compliance with new energy standards.
K2D maintains excellent relationships with code jurisdiction agencies to find solutions for those experiencing compliance problems. Title 24 regulations are stringent; therefore, third-party professional certification is required to assure the building is Title 24 compliant. This is necessary to obtain a Certificate of Occupancy.
Since the program’s inception in 1978, it’s conservatively estimated that more than 250 metric tons of greenhouse gases have been eliminated and resulted in savings exceeding $70 Billion. California takes adherence to the rules and regulations seriously because the program has been so successful.
The K2D Prescription Going Forward
California continues defining the paradigm for a green tomorrow. Our shared goals promote comprehensive energy efficiency while minimizing implementation costs.
K2D analyzes individual building systems within the full context of the project. This determines the systems that best integrate with the building architecture. Here’s what you can expect:
- Improved performance from lighting, heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems.
- Water conservation (both consumption and wastewater management).
- Minimized construction, retrofit, and energy costs.
- Reduced operations and maintenance costs throughout the entire service life of the building.
- Being Title 24 compliant by meeting or exceeding all environmental requirements.
K2D’s commitment to Title 24 compliance, energy-efficient and environmentally responsible systems is reflected in every project we work on and every service we provide.
