The purpose of the Green Codes Working Group (GCWG) is to connect the structural design community with the myriad of green codes, standards, and rating systems that may impact their clients and work product. To accomplish this goal, the GCWG will:
- Provide information on green codes and standards related to green codes, and how their adoption may affect structural engineers in their practice and the specification of products and systems. Instruments monitored include LEED, CalGreen, GreenGlobes, and ASHRAE.
- Monitor the announcements from codes, standards, and rating-system developers, providing timely information on opportunities to submit public comments and cast ballots.
- Pursue opportunities to provide comments to advocacy groups and standards development organizations on behalf of ASCE SEI structural engineer members.
