The 2010 California Green Building Standards Code, or Cal Green is the country first mandatory, statewide standards code for green construction and goes into effect January 1, 2011.
Gaia can prepare your project team or organization with the tools needed to develop a comprehensive understanding of the new code requirements. And, considering Cal Green requirements overlap with many of the LEED credit requirements the process to achieve LEED becomes easier and less expensive. To facilitate an efficient and seamless transition Gaia can provide your team with the following:
- Workshops & Training to understand the new codes
- Commissioning of your project (mandatory under Cal Green)
- Operations Manual, and other relevant forms (mandatory under Cal Green)
- Specification Writing
- Peer review/tracking Cal Green compliance
With a deep understanding of the mandatory and voluntary tiers of the Cal Green code, we can help you integrate these considerations with the overall plan you have for your project or city.
