Michigan Uniform Energy Code Training and Implementation Program

Did you know 39% of the nation’s energy is used to power the buildings in which we live and work?¹

The Michigan Uniform Energy Code Training and Implementation Program was created by the School of Planning, Design & Construction at Michigan State University.  The curriculum is designed to assist home builders, architects, engineers, subcontractors, suppliers, and government officials in implementing and enforcing the energy code in the state of Michigan.  The purpose of this program is to increase understanding, improve compliance, reduce administrative time and costs, and to improve customer relationships among these groups.

The training programs are approved for Public Act 54 continuing education credits for building officials by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs through the Michigan Bureau of Construction Codes.  Over 5,000 attendees and almost all State of Michigan Building Officials have received training through this program.

Project funded by the Michigan Bureau of Energy Systems, the Michigan State Housing development Authority, the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the U.S. Department of Energy.  Technical support provided by the Michigan Bureau of Construction Codes.  The project was conducted under the direction of faculty from the School of Planning, Design & Construction and the Construction Industry Research and Education Center (CIREC) at Michigan State University.
