Proposal to water down Las Vegas green building code draws criticism

May 28, 2013 |

A proposed bill before the Las Vegas City Council would allow any building built before 2009 undergoing a renovation to only have to meet the energy code requirements at the time of initial construction, not the current, stricter guidelines. The bill drew strong opposition during a hearing from more than a dozen people, including green building consultants, energy auditors and architects, who called the bill “short-sighted.”
