G1.1 Performance Rating Method Scope
This appendix offers an alternative path for minimum standard compliance in accordance with Section 184.108.40.206 when administered by a building official. It is also provided for those who wish to use this appendix to quantify performance that exceeds the requirements of this standard when administered by a rating authority and not seeking minimum standard compliance in accordance with Section 220.127.116.11. It shall be used for evaluating the performance of all such proposed designs, including alterations and additions to existing buildings, except designs with no mechanical systems. In the case where this appendix is administered solely by a building official to determine compliance with this standard in accordance with Section 18.104.22.168, all references to "rating authority" shall be replaced with "building official."
