2015 Energy Code Compliance (added July 2016) for new construction and additions to existing structures.
For the Washington State Energy Code, the prescriptive approach is the simplest method to code compliance. However, depending on the prescriptive option and exceptions used, documentation of compliance can be quite complex. The following forms provide much of the required documentation for plan Review. The details noted here must also be shown on your project drawings per (WSEC 104.2). To obtain a copy of the energy code, go to the following web address: http://www.energy.wsu.edu/code
