Part 2:
Commercial renovation projects dominate permit request applications across the Commonwealth and hold tremendous opportunity for energy savings via energy code compliance; yet confusion abounds as to how the 2023 Stretch Energy Code applies to renovating these existing buildings.
This presentation will address how to determine what constitutes an addition, while also providing an overview of how the 2023 Stretch Energy Code applies specifically to commercial additions, including the different requirements for both “large” and “small” additions.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand how to apply the Stretch Code to existing commercial buildings.
• Determine the applicable compliance pathway for additions under the stretch code based on the size of a building.
• Differentiate between the requirements for a change of use or occupancy, and an alteration.
• Summarize the key requirements of Chapter 5 Existing Buildings and how it impacts compliance with the Stretch Code.
• Outline the requirements of Chapter 4 as they relate to alterations.
