CALGREEN PLAN REVIEW & INSPECTING

The purpose of CALGreen is to improve public health, safety, and general welfare. Through enhanced design and construction of buildings, we use concepts which reduce negative impacts. We promote these principles which have a positive environmental impact and encourage sustainable construction practices.

CALGreen Checklist

  • The checklist is used to guarantee that green building practices are used from the beginning of the planning stage until the day the homeowners move in.   

  • First your CALGreen Inspectors (Delta T Energy) contact the jurisdiction you will be building in so that we can obtain that area's CALGreen checklist.  Not all checklists are the same and its important to obtain the correct one to make sure that you are meeting any additional local requirements. 

  • We then need a full set of plans for your project. We thoroughly go over your plans in the plan review process and make sure that all of the CALGreen requirements are correctly and clearly labeled throughout. If something is missing we will note it in our detailed response along with instructions on how to get the design up to code. 

  • Once our review is done we will sign the initial signatures section on the checklist and you will be ready to submit for permit.

​Rough-in Inspection

  • You will need to schedule an inspection appointment with us prior to installing your home's insulation and drywall.  

  • Our inspector will look for ducts covered during construction, low VOC materials being used, material moisture levels, and more. 

  • Once the inspection is complete we will give you a detailed inspection notice that will cover any issues or items that need to be addressed. 

  • After any necessary remediation has been made we will sign off on the CALGreen rough-in inspection form.

 

Final Inspection

  • You will need to again schedule an inspection appointment with us, which predates that of the building inspector's.

  • During this inspection we will be looking for things like energy star appliances, energy star/watersense fixtures, low VOC paints, a homeowners booklet which contains the manuals for all appliances, and more.

  • When all of the CALGreen requirements are met we will sign off on the final inspection form.

CALGreen requirements change based upon scope of work and jurisdiction. Let us know what type of work is being performed and the location so that we generate documentation specifically for your project.
