Codes of the Future

We are approaching a unique alignment of the planets, where all the national energy and green codes are nearly in conjunction. ASHRAE 90.1-2016 and 2018 IECC are now complete, and ASHRAE 189.1-2017 and 2018 IgCC are wrapping up this fall. Not only will Dr. Tom Culp update the membership on what’s new, but this also means we are at a fresh starting point for ASHRAE, ICC, Energy Star, and perhaps more. 

This is our time to decide: What do we want? What do we not want?  With recent advances by the industry and new technologies in the pipeline, how far do we push the envelope? These are critical questions that will impact our industry and your company 5 years down the road – but need to be discussed now. All members are encouraged to join our round table discussion. Come prepared to discuss, engage, think about the future, and tell us what you want!

If the time for fun isn't enough of a reason to participate, perhaps Hilton Head's Deep Well Project will seal the deal.  Deep Well Project was founded in 1973 and is a non-profit organization benefiting the citizens of the Hilton Head Island community.  GANA will be donating the proceeds of the golf scramble invitational to Deep Well Project.  Please join us in supporting this worthy organization and having a meaningful impact on the community in which we'll be meeting!
