All design will be done as per International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
The energy code is one of the primary drivers in any commercial lighting plan and design. NY Engineers provide you with top quality lighting COMcheck design services at affordable rates.
Our technical staff can assist you in improving the lighting efficiency of your project. We will help you in improving the overall output of your project and boost its productivity.
Comply building lighting with ASHRAE Standard 90.1, International Energy Conservation Code and Chicago Building Code through professionals.
Reduce your project’s costs and increase your legal energy efficiency compliance with our professionally trained.
It is important for your lighting designer to follow different codes that are applicable in your region. This is where NYE comes in to play its role. We can not only provide you with all the lighting design service but can also provide guidance to your lighting designer for understanding different codes that are applicable in Chicago.
Our technical staff understands the Chicago Building Code and also provide assistance in understanding various other state or local codes that are applicable. These have to be analyzed prior to the plan development phase because some of the local codes supersede the state codes in different states. One of the most effective tools that allow you to meet these codes is COMcheck.
NYE Helps To Achieve Light Source Efficiency And Code Compliance
The efficiency of a light source is measured in terms of lumen per watt. The higher this number is: the more efficient it will be your light source in terms of energy efficiency. In the past, the early models of LED light sources had 60 lumens per watt as efficiency but our technicians don’t recommend them. We recommend the latest LEDs that come with a light source efficiency of 100 lumens per watt or more. This means that there are different types of LED lights that you need to use depending upon the requirements of your project.
There are two different standards that regulate this factor. One of them is ASHRAE Standard 90.1 for buildings while the other one is the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). The IECC is developed by the International Code Council. All states in the US have adopted various versions of these codes.
These codes update every three years and each update results in increasingly stringent criteria and conditions with reducing consumptions of lighting energy in comparison with the previous version. Both these codes are widely considered to be the benchmarks for building energy codes across the US. These codes have become the centerpiece for the construction codes and standards for designing and development of various building projects in Chicago as well.
NY Engineers will not only design your project while complying with the IECC and ASHRAE Standard 90.1 but will also align it with the Chicago Building Code. Complying with these legal requirements will not only put your project out of any legal jeopardy but will also lower the overall utility costs for your projects. In addition to the energy code, there are other green building regulations as well as LEED requirements for your project to meet as well. Our trained professionals can assist you with all that and we’ll develop a construction design for you that meets all the necessary budgetary and legal requirements.
The most important aspect of realizing all the positive outcomes linked with the energy codes of your building is the compliance and verification process. The establishment and maintenance of different mechanisms for assurance of energy compliance are critical for the purpose of achieving economic growth. Efficient enforcement and compliance unlocks increased energy savings and improves cost reduction.
This means that the overall resale value of your entire project gets a boost and its environmental impacts lower as well. The BECP has generated a host of tools and innovative materials to assist the building industry in achieving, documenting and verifying compliance with the model codes. NYE can help you in the attainment of all these objectives with the expertise and knowledge of its entire engineering staff.
BECP has also produced a number of techniques and programs to assist the local and state jurisdictions to effortlessly gauge and report the compliance of a particular project with the energy codes. It also provides with all the assistance that the state and local authorities need to meet various challenges associated with the compliance process. COMcheck is one of the best tools for this purpose and NY Engineers can provide all the support associated with this tool to your project for energy-efficient completion.
