Significant Changes to the 2016 California Building Codes with Skip Walker

This all-day class covers the significant changes to the 2016 California Residential Building, Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Energy and Green Building codes, which are effective as of January 1, 2017.

California is moving rapidly towards the 2019 energy target of Net Zero for new residential construction.  The 2016 code includes a number of changes driven in large part by the push toward Net Zero.  Homes designed under the 2016 codes have a 28% smaller energy footprint than a similar home built using the 2013 codes.  High performance walls and attics, 100% high efficiency lighting and other energy conservation measures will now be mainstream.

This course focus on the differences and is perfect for jurisdictional inspectors, contractors, architects and home inspectors looking for a comprehensive discussion on the coming code cycle impact.

The seminar will be led by Skip Walker, an ICC Certified Combination Residential Building Inspector, an ICC Certified California Residential Building and Plumbing Inspector, a CREIA Master Inspector, an ASHI Certified Inspector, and a FIRE Certified Fireplace Inspector. He has presented at a number of local, state regional and national ASHI and CREIA conferences, the National Association of Realtors®, the California Association of Realtors® and the New York City Council Building and Safety Committee on smoke alarm performance and CO poisoning issues.  Skip has served in numerous capacities for CREIA and ASHI and written extensively on smoke alarms, CO issues, deck safety and general inspection issues. He is the recipient of the 2014 ASHI Philip C. Monahan Award, ASHI’s highest honor, the 2014 ASHI President’s Award, the 2014 CREIA John Daly Award, CREIA’s highest honor and the 2011 CREIA Inspector of the Year. At the 2016 CREIA Conference, he was named to the list of the 40 Most Influential Inspectors of the Last 40 Years.

There will be a mid-day break for lunch ‘on your own’.
