New Web Page Details Green Building Standard
January 20, 2010

As publication of the nation’s first code-intended high-performance green building standard draws nearer, a web page providing the detailed information about the standard, including a draft copy of the document, has been launched by The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

Proposed Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, moved one step closer to publication in December. It was approved for publication by the Boards of Directors of ASHRAE, Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES) and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the three groups that are partnering in its development. ASHRAE is going through the final stages of the American National Standards Institute consensus development process and is hopeful the standard will be available in January.

The web page, at www.ashrae.org/greenstandard serves as a one-stop resource for information on Proposed Standard 189.1, Standard for the Design of High Performance, Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings. The page contains an easily readable version of the standard, along with more information on the areas addressed by the standard and other resources for high-performance building.
