What is “Title 24” anyway?
Title 24 is a series of requirements published within the California Energy Code that details the minimum efficiency standards for all new buildings in California.
Technically the term “Title 24” refers to all of the volumes of California State Building Codes published by the California Building Standards Commission.
At Design Everest we have decades of experience in the design and construction of commercial buildings throughout the State of California. This detailed knowledge of construction costs allows us to select the most cost-effective trade-offs for your project.
CALGreen is part 11 of the California building energy efficiency standards known as Title 24. CALGreen’s base level aim attempts to reduce the environmental impact of construction through site slope preservation, drainage mitigation, and careful planning to mitigate any negative effects on neighboring areas. Compliance is two-tiered: To achieve CALGreen Tier 1, buildings must comply with the latest edition of “Savings By Design, Healthcare Modeling Procedures.” A second tier provides a higher degree of sustainability by requiring buildings to exceed the most current edition of “Savings by Design Modeling Procedures” by a measure of 15% of higher, according to the International Code Council. Design Everest provides full project management services to ensure compliance under CALGreen.
We are a true one-stop engineering shop with expertise in a wide range of specializations in providing Commercial Cal Green and Title 24 Services as listed above.

I have had the pleasure to work one on one with Design Everest. Our company, City Construction, has had nothing but positive experiences with their entire team thus far.

I wouldn't hesitate to refer them to any of my clients, friends or family.
