JURISDICTIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND
LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT
This chapter contains requirements that are specific to and selected by the jurisdiction and provisions for whole building life cycle assessment.
The requirements contained in this code are applicable to buildings, or portions of buildings. As indicated in Section 101.3, these buildings shall meet either the requirements of ASHRAE 189.1 or the requirements contained in this code.
301.2 Jurisdictional requirements.
This chapter requires that the jurisdiction indicate in Table 302.1 whether specific provisions are mandatory for all buildings regulated by this code and, where applicable, the level of compliance required. All other provisions of this code shall be mandatory as applicable.
302.1 Requirements determined by the jurisdiction.
The jurisdiction shall indicate the following information in Table 302.1 for inclusion in its code adopting ordinance:
1. The jurisdiction shall indicate whether requirements for residential buildings, as indicated in Exception 1 to Section 101.3, are applicable by selecting “Yes” or “No” in Table 302.1. Where “Yes” is selected, the provisions of ICC 700 shall apply and the remainder of this code shall not apply.
2. Where the jurisdiction requires enhanced energy performance for buildings designed on a performance basis, the jurisdiction shall indicate a zEPI of 46 or less in Table 302.1 for each occupancy required to have enhanced energy performance.
3. Where “Yes” or “No” boxes are provided, the jurisdiction shall check the box to indicate “Yes” where that section is to be enforced as a mandatory requirement in the jurisdiction, or “No” where that section is not to be enforced as a mandatory requirement in the jurisdiction.

WHOLE BUILDING LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT
303.1 Whole building life cycle assessment.
Where a whole building life cycle assessment is performed in accordance with Section 303.1, compliance with Section 505 shall not be required. The requirements for the execution of a whole building life cycle assessment shall be performed in accordance with the following:
1. The assessment shall demonstrate that the building project achieves not less than a 20-percent improvement in environmental performance for global warming potential and at least two of the following impact measures, as compared to a reference design of similar usable floor area, function and configuration that meets the minimum energy requirements of this code and the structural requirements of the International Building Code. For relocatable buildings, the reference design shall be comprised of the number of reference buildings equal to the estimated number of uses of the relocatable building.
1.1. Primary energy use.
1.2. Acidification potential.
1.3. Eutrophication potential.
1.4. Ozone depletion potential.
1.5. Smog potential.
2. The reference and project buildings shall utilize the same life cycle assessment tool.
3. The life cycle assessment tool shall be approved by the code official.
4. Building operational energy shall be included. For relocatable buildings, an average building operational energy shall be estimated to reflect potential changes in location, siting, and configuration by adding or subtracting modules, or function.
5. Building process loads shall be permitted to be included.
6. Maintenance and replacement schedules and actions for components shall be included in the assessment. For relocatable buildings, average transportation energy, material and waste generation associated with reuse of relocatable buildings shall be included in the assessment.
7. The full life cycle, from resource extraction to demolition and disposal, including but not limited to, onsite construction, maintenance and replacement, relocation and reconfiguration, and material and product embodied acquisition, process and transportation energy, shall be assessed.
Exception: Electrical and mechanical equipment and controls, plumbing products, fire detection and alarm systems, elevators and conveying systems shall not be included in the assessment.
8. The complete building envelope, structural elements, inclusive of footings and foundations, and interior walls, floors and ceilings, including interior and exterior finishes, shall be assessed to the extent that data are available for the materials being analyzed in the selected life cycle assessment tool.
9. The life cycle assessment shall conform to the requirements of ISO 14044.
