CalGreen Checklist Services – the benefit of experience.
The California Building Code requires that all new building permits applications require a completed CalGreen Checklist form. This rather involved form places design and construction obligations on your project. We see far too many projects where owners have been committed by their consultants during the permit stage to far more costly items than are required.
Why? Simply because the person filling out the checklist did not have the expertise to evaluate the actual requirements. It’s very easy to add a simple “X” to box in a long checklist. Every little “X” that is checked makes a financial commitment for the building owner. Once the CalGreen Checklist has been approved by the building department, your project is committed to providing every single checklist item.
Scrutinizing the CalGreen Checklist
At CalGreen Energy Services we carefully evaluate EVERY checklist item with skepticism. Our staff has decades of design and construction experience. This code and construction industry knowledge allows us to critically evaluate each and every item.
Our goal is to never commit a building owner to even one unnecessary checklist obligation. We will work directly with your local building department when necessary to ensure only those code requirements that are clearly applicable to your project are included in the permit submittal.
There is typically only a small difference in fees between companies providing CalGreen Checklist services. Who do you want on your project?
A Title 24 energy code consultant who has never actually designed a building?
Or a professional with decades of design experience that understands the code intent and can to limit your project costs?
