ASHRAE 90.1 Code Compliance and Plan Review for Authorities Having Jurisdiction

Share This

Course Length: 6 hours

The 2019 version of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 is becoming widely adopted by U.S. local code authorities and by federal and military building construction management units. The previous version of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 added a new simulation-based performance path for compliance and provided methods for using this new path. ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019 refines that path.

 This seminar provides guidance on how to specify and manage the compliance procedures conducted and recognize issues that surface under both design/bid/build and design/build project arrangements.   Also discussed is how to apply ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2019, Appendix G rules and procedures.  The prescriptive compliance section focuses on reviewing ASHRAE forms and relevant ComCheck submissions and cross-checking the information on standard design documents. 

 Requirements of the standard, how the requirements are presented in the energy model input and output and how to comply with the new U.S. Department of Energy Final Rule for federal facilities are explained. Examples of several different energy simulation model platforms are given.
