Navigating the 2015 Energy Code

The State of Hawaii has adopted the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) with amendments (Hawaii Energy Code). Currently, the four counties in the State are going through the adoption process with their own local amendments, and soon all will have to comply with this newer version of the Energy Code. With the adoption of every new code, there usually is some confusion as to what the new requirements are, and the requirements for steel framed construction is no exception. Fortunately, the Hawaii Steel Alliance participated in the committee meetings of the State Building Code Council to make sure that steel framing remains on a level playing field with other building materials.
