Starting next month, the City of Dallas will allow qualified third parties to conduct plan reviews and inspections to ensure compliance with the city’s green building ordinance. Companies that are currently Green Built Texas verifiers, HERS raters, and/or have IECC certification can register with the city as a provider upon completing a required orientation program.
Information on the orientation program and the new third party review process (starting on September 1) is below. For more information on proposed changes to the green building ordinance, click here.
GREEN BUILDING PROGRAM NOTICE (sent by the City of Dallas)
On September 1, 2011, the City of Dallas will begin to accept third party plan review and inspection results for the “Green Building Program”. Registration as a third party provider is required and attendance of the orientation is mandatory.
Third party providers will be registered at three different levels. The levels are for single family and duplex, commercial buildings less than 50,000 square feet and for commercial buildings equal to or greater than 50,000 square feet. The orientation will provide specific requirements for each of the three levels.
