Building science, energy codes and our understanding of the factors that can affect building sustainability, human health & safety and the environment that we live in have been changing rapidly in recent years. This short presentation, which will be focused on residential buildings, will cover some of the basics on building science, the latest on Massachusetts Energy Codes (i.e., Stretch Code and recent IECC), and the required steps for complying with the MA code.

In addition, we will cover some of the best options and practices seen in the field related to the water management, insulation, windows, HVAC and ventilation. We also say a few words about the MassSave incentive program available for both the new construction and Renovation and Addition (R&A) projects.
