CA-CHPS 2011 CALGreen Addendum

California’s new green building code - known as CALGreen – goes into effect for new schools on January 1, 2011. Recognizing the need to incorporate the new code into our high performance school building criteria, the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) has released an addendum to the 2009 edition of the California CHPS Criteria.

The addendum is made up of two sections. The first section covers unaffected prerequisites, which overlap with CALGreen, but are as stringent or more stringent than the code. The second section contains new prerequisites, which have been created to reflect CALGreen, and impacted credits, which have been adjusted in response to the code. New and changed prerequisites and credits include:

  • Reduce Sewage Conveyance from Toilets and Urinals
  • Reduce Indoor Potable Water Use
  • Low-Emitting Materials
This addendum was distributed to the CHPS National Technical Committee for review and comment between November 13 and November 24, 2010. The addendum goes into effect on January 1, 2011.
