Proven Results in Structural Engineering


October 17, 2013


The State of California has announced changes to the 2013 Energy Code that will affect architects, developers and public agencies alike. VCA Green, in conjunction with code consultant Kim Hogan, has developed a complimentary white paper called "Meeting the Challenges of the 2013 Energy Code," highlighting what we feel are the most significant changes. At VCA Green, we are here to help make the 2013 CALGreen and Energy Code requirements as effective and efficient as possible for your project. If you have questions or comments, please do not hesitate to call or email me.

We hope you enjoy this overview.
