We provide CalGreen services for the City of Roseville. We are specialists in the CalGreen code. As a result we and can help you avoid unnecessary permitting and construction costs. Roseville CalGreen permits are required for all new residential and commercial construction projects.
Specifically our services include authoring your CalGreen checklist, dealing with the city of Roseville Building Department and consulting during the construction process. In addition, our ICC certified CalGreen Special Inspectors can provide the final inspection required for occupancy.
The goal of CalGreen is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote healthy environments and reduce wastage of energy and water resources. These lofty goals can come at a cost to the unwary new home builder or commercial developer.
We provide value to your project by ensuring you do not commit to any more CalGreen obligations than are necessary.
One of the very real problems with the checklists that the City of Roseville uses is that they include every single CalGreen requirement. Many of these may not be required for your project. It takes a CalGreen specialist to properly review your checklist and clearly identify only those items that you must comply with.
The checklist is eleven pages long and includes every conceivable CalGreen requirement!
If this checklist simply gets copied from the City’s website and stuck on the permit as is, it’s a recipe for disaster. This is because you have just committed your project to following every single requirement. If you aren’t a specialist in the Green Buildings Standard Code you may not understand that you do not have to comply with many of these requirements.
As a matter of fact, many home builders end up spending more money on their CalGreen compliance than is necessary. This is often because person they hired to author the checklist simply did not understand the details of the code.
“We haven’t had a problem with CalGreen before, why now?”
For a number of years architects and homebuilders have gotten away with essentially ignoring the CalGreen Code. They simply add the checklist, as is, to their projects and forget about it. This has been possible because the enforcement of the code has been sporadic, at best.
That is beginning to change in Roseville. The city is starting to follow up on the checklist requirements during the final building inspections. Unwary architects and builders are surprised during the final inspection report when multiple CalGreen checklist items are noted as not been installed. This leads to delays in occupancy and costly change orders.
