Energy Code Trainings–What did you think?

On October 26, 2009, AIANY, ASHRAE and Urban Green kicked off the training program “Energy Code Changes: What the design team needs to know.” It addressed a variety of topics related to the greening of New York’s building codes, as part of the innovative PlaNYC.

As we prepare for a December session (read more about the all-day December 2 program here), we’d love to get feedback on the first iteration of this groundbreaking program. Post your comments below, and please, when giving your feedback, refer to specific sessions, listed below.
