The 2009 Seattle building, residential, mechanical, fuel gas, and existing building codes are all now available from DPD’s Public Resource Center.
The 2009 Seattle Energy Code requirements for residential spaces took effect statewide on January 1, 2011. (The 2009 Seattle Energy Code requirements for nonresidential spaces took effect on November 23, 2010.) For determining the 2009 Seattle Energy Code requirements, you need to look at both the 2009 Washington State Energy Code and Seattle ordinance 123430.
Public review of the draft 2009 Seattle Energy Code – SEC (the 2009 Washington State Energy Code with additional Seattle amendments) will begin in February. DPD has scheduled a series of meetings to discuss proposed amendments. All meetings will take place in the Seattle Municipal Tower (SMT), 700 Fifth Avenue.
