Residential Energy Design Series Session #3  

"Practical Title 24 in 2017 - Existing Buildings"


Course Title:  Practical Title 24 in 2017 – Existing Buildings

Date: March 27, 2017

Time: 6:00 – 7:30 pm                  

Location: American Institute of Architects/Los Angeles, 3780 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 800, Los Angeles, CA 90010

Description:  California’s aggressive revision of the Title 24 energy code is as much a challenge for existing buildings as for new.  Increasingly, the State is leveraging remodel and addition projects to compel the improvement of a building’s energy performance.  Energy requirements can cause a ripple effect in your project’s scope of work, causing impact to parts of the building you may have intended to leave untouched.  Further, baseline energy measures can bring with them unappealing aesthetic choices.  Join leading sustainable builder Allen Construction to explore the requirements of the new energy code as they pertain to existing buildings, take an in-the-trenches look at practical impact on our local building stock, and examine strategies for better design outcomes.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what aspects of your existing building work scope will trigger the requirement to comply with the 2016 revision of Title 24 energy code.
  • Learn how to anticipate and manage the “ripple effect” of Title 24 requirements to aspects of the building that might have otherwise been outside your scope of work.
  • Explore alternative energy measures that support design choices more aesthetically compatible with our local architecture.
  • Learn key, cost-effective strategies for achieving compliance in the context of an existing building.

Presenter’s Bio:

Scott Nyborg, Sustainability Manager, Allen Construction

Scott put aside a career in computer programming to start building houses with his brother in 2004 and has never looked back. He has designed and built sustainable, custom homes in Northwest Montana, New Hampshire, and Southern California. He takes a holistic view of the building process, having self-performed most of the major trades and worked in design as well.

Scott’s passion for sustainability has led him to the ongoing study of building science and the application of science to the creation of low-energy, low-water, comfortable, and healthy homes. He is a self-taught mechanical designer. Before joining the Allen Construction team, he founded and managed a home performance contracting company focused on the design and installation of extremely efficient building shells and HVAC systems.

Scott holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, is a LEED Accredited Professional, and holds multiple BPI credentials. He is an instructor for Efficiency First (formerly the California Building Performance Contractors Association) and passionate about educating the construction industry on building science. He has presented at industry conferences on various topics involving home performance and HVAC design.
