GLRPPR Sector Resource: Strategy Guideline: Advanced Construction Documentation Recommendations for High Performance Homes

Title:
Strategy Guideline: Advanced Construction Documentation Recommendations for High Performance Homes

Abstract:
As whole house energy efficiency increases, new houses become less like conventional houses that were built in the past. New materials and new systems require greater coordination and communication between industry stakeholders. The Guideline for Construction Documents for High Performance Housing provides advice to address this need. The reader will be presented with four changes that are recommended to achieve improvements in energy efficiency, durability and health in Building America houses: create coordination drawings, improve specifications, improve detail drawings, and review drawings and prepare a Quality Control Plan.
