TITLE 24 OVERVIEW
What is Title 24?
Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, known as the California Building Standards Code or just "Title 24," contains the regulations that govern the construction of buildings in California, including the energy conservation standards applicable to all residential and non-residential buildings throughout California, including schools and community colleges.
The 2013 edition of the California Building Standards Code (Title 24) became effective on January 1, 2014. Projects submitted to DSA on or after this date must be designed and constructed in compliance with the 2013 edition of Title 24.
The 2016 update, which becomes effective on January 1, 2017, focuses on several key areas to improve the energy efficiency of newly constructed buildings and additions and alterations to existing buildings.
Navigating through Title 24 regulations and understanding mandated accessibility, lighting control devices and systems, the use of day lighting and controls, compliant HVAC and ventilation systems, and much more is complex and can be daunting. And let's not forget the required Title 24 reports.
