CALGreen, the country’s first green building code, is also now in effect in California. While designed to ensure a base level of green building measures are met for all new construction projects in the state, the implementation of the code by local building departments varies greatly.
With a certified ICC CalGreen compliance consultants on staff, CPG provides full project management services to ensure compliance under CALGreen. We also provide indepth training workshops for architects, contractors, and city officials to review the new code requirements, examine how CALGreen compares to other third party rating systems like LEED and provide tips and tools to navigate the submittal and review process.
Cities across the country are adopting similar green building requirements at a rapid rate. These requirements can often be complex and confusing. CPG Consultants will help you navigate the multitude of CalGreen compliance requirements now in place in many municipalities throughout the country. CPG works with building owners, designers, and contractors throughout the design, permitting and construction process to help ensure full code compliance and documentation requirements are met. We will work with the team early in the design process, meet with local officials to review documentation and get you what you need to earn your planning approvals and building permits.
For municipalities requiring a licensed Green Building Compliance Professional of Record, CPG Consultants provides sign-off and verification services.
