Energy Code Solutions for Metal Buildings

American Buildings has assembled a dedicated team of energy experts equipped with the knowledge and tools to help you navigate the increasingly complex energy regulations

The two most common energy codes used to outline minimum requirements for energy-efficient low-rise construction are ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC. These two entities address energy conservation requirements for commercial and residential construction – including heating & ventilation, lighting, water heating, and power usage. However, many states are choosing to update their regulations and adhere to newer, more rigorous codes. It is important to check the local regulations and requirements before beginning a construction project – and that is where we come in. American’s dedicated energy team is available to assist you through this process.
