subch. I of ch. SPS 363 Subchapter I — Purpose and Application
SPS 363.001 SPS 363.001Purpose. This chapter regulates the design and construction of buildings for the effective use of energy. This chapter provides flexibility to permit the use of innovative approaches and techniques to achieve the effective use of energy. This chapter is not intended to abridge safety, health or environmental requirements contained in other applicable codes.
SPS 363.001 History History: CR 06-120: cr. Register February 2008 No. 626, eff. 3-1-08.
SPS 363.002 SPS 363.002Application.
SPS 363.002(1)(1)Mixed occupancy. Where a building includes both residential and commercial occupancies, each occupancy shall be separately considered and meet the applicable provisions of IECC chapter 4 for residential or IECC chapter 5 for commercial.
SPS 363.002(2) (2)Exempt buildings and structures. Glazed structures or glazed portions of buildings used for the production of plant life or for maintaining plant life as the primary purpose are exempt from the building thermal envelope provisions of this code, provided that glazed portions are separated from the remainder of the building by building thermal envelope assemblies complying with this chapter.

SPS 363.0202 SPS 363.0202General definitions.
SPS 363.0202(1)(1)Additions. This is a department definition for this chapter in addition to the definitions in IMC section 202: “Effective aperture" or “EA" means for windows, the visible light transmittance times the window wall ratio per wall; and for sky lights, the well efficiency times the visible light transmittance times the sky light area times 0.85 divided by the gross exterior roof area.
SPS 363.0202(2) (2)Substitutions. Substitute the following definition for the corresponding definition listed in IECC section 202: “Approved" has the meaning given in s. SPS 362.0202 (2).
