Performance Based Compliance Documentation for ASHRAE 90.1 Section 11 and Appendix G

This 2-hour training focuses on ASHRAE Standard 90.1 reporting requirements applicable to performance-based projects and covers the documentation that must be submitted to code officials and administrators of above-code programs. It illustrates how to fill out the DOE (Department of Energy) Compliance Form, discusses productivity tips, efficient workflow, and covers the common mistakes and best practices. The training targets energy modelers, submittal reviewers and members of design teams signing off on the submittals. The training includes presentation and live demonstration of how to fill out the Compliance Form for a sample project.
