Alpers Engineering Group is well versed in California Title 24 Energy Code 2010, which provides owners with an assurance that requirements will be met. In 2009, the California Building Standards Commission issued the 2008 Green Building Standards Code. Compliance with the code was voluntary (unless otherwise adopted by local jurisdictions) through December 31, 2010. In January 2011, the 2008 code was replaced with the 2010 code, which required state-wide mandatory compliance. Under the code (section 5.410.2), building commissioning became mandatory. The code (section 5.410.2) states:  

"For new buildings 10,000 square feet and over, building commissioning shall be included in the design and construction processes of the building project to verify that the building systems and components meet the owner’s or owner representative’s project requirements. Commissioning shall be performed in accordance with this section by trained personnel with experience on projects of comparable size and complexity.  Commissioning requirements shall include:

  • Owner’s Project Requirements
  • Basis of Design
  • Commissioning measures shown in the Construction Documents
  • Commissioning Plan
  • Functional Performance Testing
  • Documentation & Training
  • Commissioning Report
  • All building systems and components covered by Title 24, Part 6, as well as process equipment and controls, and renewable energy systems shall be included in the scope of the Commissioning Requirements."
