LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT


  • SECTION 301
    GENERAL

    301.1 Scope.
    This chapter contains requirements that are specific to and selected by the jurisdiction and provisions for whole building life cycle assessment.

    301.1.1 Application.
    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.

    SECTION 302
    JURISDICTIONAL REQUIREMENTS

    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.
