Stretching the New Code Further

March 2023

Stretching the New Code Further. Massachusetts has adopted the new Stretch Energy Code and Municipal Opt-In Stretch Code in 2023 making low-energy buildings (including additions and alterations) mandatory. The New Stretch Code focuses on heating and cooling load reduction emphasizing high performance enclosures, minimizing thermal bridging and air infiltration. Paul Ormond of Department of Energy Resources (DOER), State of Massachusetts will review the timeline (some already here!) and impact of the new code on our local construction projects including the options for complying with the code.

Come prepared to join the discussion and share the implications of this new code for your practice. Bring ideas for what the Worcester regional construction market needs to meet the challenge of the new code and beyond.
