Title 24 Part 11 is the CalGreen Code. CalGreen is the California Green Building Standards Code that has mandatory and voluntary measures. The new updated 2016 CalGreen code began January 1, 2017. The CalGreen Code applies to ALL newly constructed residential and non-residential buildings: low-rise, high-rise, and hotels/motels. The code was established to reduce construction waste, make buildings more efficient in the use of materials and energy and reduce environmental impact during and after construction. Here is a direct link to the entire code: https://codes.iccsafe.org/public/document/details/toc/657. Below is the easy to view residential CalGreen checklist as images or click here for this checklist as a pdf.
