The American Institute of Architects, California Council, Offers a Free CALGreen Checklist

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 7, 2011) - The AIACC is pleased to announce a new, FREE resource available to AIACC members, as just one of the many benefits of membership. New Green Building Codes went into effect in January 2011. In order to assist members with meeting the requirements of the 2010 California Green Building Codes, (CALGreen) the AIACC has partnered in the development of the new Residential CALGreen Checklist. The Checklist is to help support those in the architectural profession, as well as local building officials as a means to comply with the new requirements of CALGreen. A Commercial Checklist is currently under development and will be released soon. In addition, the AIACC provides four units of CALGreen continuing education in efforts to help architects meet their continuing education requirements. For Non-AIA member architects who take the AIACC's continuing education units online, the CALGreen Checklist will be provided to them FREE of charge as well. Please visit the AIACC website at further information regarding continuing education opportunities.
