The 2009 Green Residential Building Study Companion is a comprehensive study guide to assist the user in the review and application of the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard (NGBS), and the referenced code sections in the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC).
The ICC-700 National Green Building Standard was developed as a joint effort between the International Code Council (ICC) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and it is the first national consensus-based ANSI-approved Standard that establishes minimum criteria and definitions for the design and construction of green residential buildings, building sites, subdivisions and renovations. This Standard is intended to provide flexibility to permit the use of innovative approaches and techniques, without abridging safety, health, or environmental requirements in other applicable laws, codes or ordinances.
