Energy Code Solutions for Metal Buildings

Energy regulations in steel building construction are becoming increasingly complex. At NBS, you have a dedicated team of energy experts equipped with the knowledge and tools to help you navigate this process.

ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC are the two most common energy codes used to outline minimum requirements for energy-efficient steel building construction. These two entities address energy conservation requirements for commercial and residential construction – including heating & ventilation, lighting, water heating, and power usage. However, many states are choosing to update their regulations and adhere to newer, more rigorous codes.

It’s important to check the local regulations and requirements before beginning a construction project – and that is where Nucor comes in. Our dedicated energy team is available to assist you through this process.
