NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project will integrate several advances in manufactured home design and construction that taken together will provide a model for how the industry can cost-effectively achieve the state's energy and fire safety goals. To achieve these goals, the project consists of two parallel and overlapping design-development tracks: innovative envelope (wall and roof) systems and comprehensive solutions for meeting requirements of Title 24. In crafting solutions, the team will focus on advancing envelope innovations that hold the promise of improving thermal performance without adding cost.
