NEEP: Ready, Set, Scale: Expanding Building Inspections: RVI and Off-Site Construction
Remote virtual inspections (RVI) and off-site construction are timesaving measures, and help mitigate the effects of an ongoing shortage of code officials.
This webinar focuses on remote virtual inspections (RVI) and off-site construction. Off-site construction practices have become increasingly common as a strategy for addressing the challenges of sustainability, affordability, and quality within the building industry.
Regardless of where building components are fabricated, projects must comply with the building codes in place at the final job site. Given separate sites for fabrication and construction, innovative deployment of RVI and third-party inspections address barriers and can help facilitate more off-site construction projects. Of course, the use of RVI is not limited to off-site construction. They are a timesaving measure, and this helps mitigate the effects of an ongoing shortage of code officials.
RMI has created a series of state-specific factsheets designed to inform policymakers, advocates, and other stakeholders on the core building electrification issues.
Building science is just that—a science—and many of the home health and comfort issues that homeowners face involve complex information and techniques that can be difficult to understand. To make the communication process easier, read these tips.
This presentation provides insights on when to minimize or maximize certain design factors and emphasizes the critical role of balance in multifamily, high-performance, high-density projects.
