Montana developing high-performance building standards for state projects

The Montana Department of Administration is developing a single building standard for all state facilities, and hopes to have a plan in place this spring. The state legislature directed the agency to adopt high-performance building standards in 2009, but the agency did not have the personnel to carry it out. With a consultant now in place, the initiative is moving forward. In a related development,student leaders at the University of Montana and Montana State University are urging officials to adopt high-performance building standards for campus facilities and to consider reinvesting any energy savings back into projects to achieve additional efficiency.
