Hawaii Energy Building Code
The Hawaii State Energy Office chairs and is a voting member of the State Building Code Council, which was established by statute to update, adopt, and amend building codes. The following links will provide you with valuable information and resources on the state building energy code.
A series of free statewide training sessions were offered to government employees, architects, engineers, contractors, and others in the design and construction community. The training sessions covered energy efficient design concepts and code requirements for both residential and commercial buildings. Updated checklists were provided and new requirements were highlighted.
The session scheduled for Kauai was postponed due the storm flooding on the island. The Kauai session was conducted as a webinar.
The detailed checklists are for voluntary use by architects, engineers, builders and plan checkers. Their purpose is to ensure that all applicable energy code measures are included in the plans.
Designer Compliance Certification Blocks
The certification blocks are shorter documents for the designer of record to fill out and the county plan checker to quickly assess the degree of code compliance.
