Purpose
The Reach Code Advisory Committee, with possible sub-committees, will assist the division in the development of the first Oregon Reach Code. The primary goal of the code is to provide an optional set of statewide construction standards for energy efficiency that exceed the requirements of the state's mandatory codes. The Reach Code will act like a statewide alternate method: builders will have an optional "green" path and jurisdictions can be assured the state-of-the-art construction methods are sound. Discussions around the Reach Code will cover a variety of topics and may include: mechanical systems, lighting designs, overall building design (both residential and commercial), plumbing practices and products. The Committee will explore tactics for aligning the code with federal, state, and local financial incentives.
