San Francisco's Green Building Ordinance - New Green Building Submittal Form for Tenant Improvements

BOMA San Francisco Members:

In 2008, San Francisco established green building requirements for new residential and commercial buildings, as well as renovations to existing buildings. California’s Building Standards Commission subsequently adopted Title 24 Part 11 (2010), the California Green Building Standards Code (known as CALGreen). Chapter 13C of the San Francisco Building Code – the Green Building Ordinance – combines the 2010 California Green Building Standards Code with stricter local requirements. 

Note that for interior commercial tenant improvement projects with cost no less than $500,000, please reference the new green building submittal form now required by the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection.  This form will be used to enforce San Francisco's Green Building Ordinance.  BOMA San Francisco's Codes and Regulations Committee members worked directly with the San Francisco Department of Building Inspection leadership, in particular, James Zhan and Mohsin Shaikh, to streamline this document for future commercial tenant improvements. 

For all other commercial additions exceeding 2,000 sq. ft., or alterations of $500,000 or more that are not interior tenant improvements, permit applicants should continue to use the submittal template C-5 -  Specific Locally Required Measures Only.
