Workshop Description

Presenter(s): Gregory Adams, Director of Facilities Services, Marquette University | William Brodnax, Sustainability Consultant, Energy Ace

The Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Construction Act of 2008 becomes effective on July 1, 2010 for all state-funded facilities in Georgia.  This will apply to new construction, renovations, changes in occupancy, roof replacements, and tenant improvements on leased facilities.

This workshop will entail a review of the Act, its requirements, and the Georgia Peach Green Building Program. The workshop will include a hands-on training session for each requirement and submittal information. A case study example of a state facility in Georgia will be reviewed to demonstrate how the program works and compares to others.  The contents of this workshop will be of interest to state agencies, design professionals, contractors and all state agencies.

The workshop will be led by William Brodnax of Energy Ace.  Energy Ace has been retained by the State of Georgia to provide training for the Act and Georgia Peach rating system.  Also joining us will be Greg Adams, Director of Management and Operations at the Board of Regents Office of Facilities.  Tours of three LEED-certified facilities on the campus of Kennesaw State University will be included in the schedule.  Continental breakfast, refreshments, and lunch are also included in the cost of registration.
 

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Describe an overview of the Georgia Senate Bill 130's Energy Efficiency and Sustainable Construction Act of 2008 (EESCA), the first piece of statewide legislation in Georgia that now mandates sustainable building practices for all state owned and leased projects.
  2. Discussion will take place on how this act will affect state representatives, contractors and/or design professionals.
  3. Instruction held on how the EESCA forms should be completed and submitted, and how they can assure compliance with the law, which becomes effective July 1, 2010.
