Significant Changes to the 2021 Residential Energy Codes – A Builder’s Perspective

The session will provide an overview of significant changes made to the Energy Provisions of the 2021 Oregon Residential Specialty Code.  In addition to outlining the significant changes, Mike Goodrich, Codes and Technical Training Consultant with the Oregon Home Builders Association will discuss the process by which those changes occurred, where to find additional information and resources for understanding those new provisions, and how the requirements are likely to be interpreted in the field.  Mike has several decades of residential construction as well as code-adoption experience in Oregon and the session is presented from a builder’s perspective with a focus on where and how the changes are likely to impact existing materials and systems as well as suggestions for implementing them in a manner to avoid unintended consequences.
