Patrick Fernbach, PE, WELL AP, principal and director of mechanical engineering at Kohrs Lonnemann Heil Engineers, Inc. (KLH Engineers), will discuss the 2024 Ohio Mechanical and Energy Code Updates and its impact on engineers and architects during a collaborative event hosted by Dayton ASHRAE and AIA Dayton on March 11, 2024. The presentation will take place at 12:00 p.m. EST at the Engineers Club of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio.

Effective March 1, 2024, Ohio’s regulatory landscape will undergo a significant transformation with the adoption of the 2024 Ohio Building Code (OBC), Mechanical (OMC), and Plumbing Codes (OPC), including 2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). These updates aim to streamline regulations by incorporating the 2021 edition of the International Codes (I-Codes) with Ohio-specific amendments, effectively removing duplicative and unnecessary language.

Fernbach’s presentation will offer detailed insights into the changes to both the Ohio Mechanical Code and Ohio Energy Code, with a focus on their impacts on the building’s design. Key areas of discussion will include impacts of the energy code requirements on envelope, air leakage testing, and commissioning requirements and the impacts on the mechanical design.

This event provides an opportunity for engineers and architects to gain firsthand understanding of the regulatory changes and their practical implications for project development and implementation.
