Introduction to the International Green Construction Code

The IgCC provides a comprehensive and flexible regulatory approach to sustainability in new construction, site development, and renovations to existing buildings. This course will provide an introduction to the IgCC, in terms of both its structure and its content. Alternative compliance paths, jurisdictional requirements, and project electives will be covered along with the actual prescriptive contents of the code. Assignments will include determining compliance for hypothetical projects.
