Commercial Multi-Family and the Energy Code

A building doesn't just appear.  It starts with the design of the building, and ends with it being inspected. What should be provided on the plans and what should the building department staff be looking for when reviewing a project to get the desired results in the field for energy compliance? We are going to review these questions with examples from commercial plans for multi-family and mixed use occupancies.   We will discuss about the good and the bad in the process that is needed to get a project compliant with the energy code.

Mechanical Energy Plan Review - 2 DAY EVENT
October 16 and 17, 2023
8:00 am - 10:00 am

A mechanical system doesn't just appear.  It starts with the design of the system and ends with it being inspected. What should be provided on the plans and what should I be looking for when reviewing a project to get the desired results in the field by the contractors and inspectors for energy compliance? We are going to review these questions with examples from plans and pictures from the field, both good and maybe not so good. Let's talk about the process that is needed to get a project complaint with the energy code.

Important Request to local Building Departments


The Division of Housing's Building Codes & Standards Section which regulates modular construction state-wide is making an urgent request for your consideration. Please review the first attachment for specific details. During this unprecedented time, we ask for your assistance in helping move forward modular construction projects occurring in your jurisdiction in order to help house Coloradans faster.

We have created some flexibility in our process as we work to address our staffing shortage (please see second and third attachments). We ask you to accept this temporary alternative process to help address Colorado's housing crisis by allowing the site work for modular construction to also begin with a third-party plan review approval in place as we work to review and approve all modular construction plans and get our approved set of plans out to ensure safety and code compliance.


Thank you for your consideration and please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Sawn Lumber Grade Marks and Alternatives to Grade Marks


Sawn Lumber Grade Marks and Alternatives to Grade Marks

A grade mark is the most common way of identifying important structural properties and quality of sawn lumber in accordance with US DOC PS 20 American Lumber Standard.

Occasionally, state legislation is proposed that would create an exception to grading and grade marking of sawn lumber, allowing the use of locally-sourced, sawn lumber in residential construction or an associated accessory structure. The law seldom goes into detail on how the lumber grade is to be assigned or how to ensure that the material is locally-sourced, leaving it to the building official to deal with the challenges of permitting use of unmarked lumber of potentially unknown origin to meet intent of the code in terms of quality and safety. 

Often, the laws are unnecessary, since the International Residential Code (IRC) has provisions for use of sawn lumber that has no grade mark. Section R502.1.1 of the 2021 IRC allows the use of a certificate of inspection issued by a recognized lumber grading or inspection agency in lieu of a grade mark:

R502.1.1 Sawn lumber. Sawn lumber shall be identified by a grade mark of an accredited lumber grading or inspection agency and have design values certified by an accreditation body that complies with DOC PS 20. In lieu of a grade mark, a certificate of inspection issued by a lumber grading or inspection agency meeting the requirements of this section shall be accepted.”

Identification of sawn lumber conformance to requirements of US DOC PS 20 American Lumber Standard, either by grade mark on each individual piece or through a certificate of inspection, is fundamental to safe use in accordance with the code. Without knowing the grade of sawn lumber, the IRC prescriptive designs, including the span tables based on structural properties of graded sawn lumber, cannot be used and engineered designs cannot be performed due to lack of design values.

The American Lumber Standards Committee ( has contact information of recognized lumber grading and inspection agencies throughout the country. These agencies can help identify local grading services that are able to issue a certificate of inspection for sawn lumber that is not grade marked.
