The Cooper Union and the NYC Department of Buildings Collaborate To Provide a Comprehensive NYC Energy Code Compliance Course

As part of The Cooper Union's Continuing Education Department's Green Building Design Certificate Program, one of the few LEED prep initiatives offered in New York City, The Cooper Union and the NYC Department of Buildings (DOB) have teamed to bring the most in-depth course available in the 2011 Energy Conservation Code. The Energy Code Compliance Course is the only one that specifically covers New York City compliance requirements and provides 14 professional development credits.  The six-module course, taught by experts from DOB and Viridian Energy & Environmental, LLC, consists of two daylong sessions addressing technical issues and strategies: Administrative Overview; Residential Requirements; Commercial Envelope Requirements; Commercial HVAC 1 and 2; and Commercial Lighting and Power Requirements.

The New York City Energy Conservation Code applies to all new building and alteration applications filed on or after July 1, 2010. The updated 2011 NYCECC, based on the 2010 ECCCNYS, affects all applications filed on or after December 28, 2010.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
