Construction Cost Savings

Cost Savings

Since 2006, Gallant Energy Consulting has generated over $1.1 million in reduced construction costs and utility incentives related to Title 24 documentation for California developers. These construction cost savings and utility incentives were achieved on the projects listed below for which Gallant Energy Consulting did not prepare the original Title 24 reports submitted for building permits.

Recently we have reviewed several projects for construction cost reduction with the new stricter 2005 Title 24 energy code.

Del Mar 3800 sf Single Family Residence. Eliminated need of AC and ductwork (radiant heated floor). Savings of $25,000.
Bakersfield 10000sf Retail Building. Eliminated the use of R30 insulation in the roof with a cool roof spray foam R19. Savings of $14,000.
Los Angeles 8800sf Retail Building. Eliminated the use of Rigid insulation in the furred walls. Also allowed for clear storefront glass.
Riverside 86 Lot Single Family Subdivision: Eliminated the use of Radiant Barriers.
Wildomar 91 Lot Single Family Subdivision: Eliminated the need for Tight Duct Testing and
