Two manual methods of demonstrating compliance using worksheets, prescriptive and tradeoff, are available. Note that both the worksheet method and the software method (REScheck) require that the general provisions of Chapter 5, Sections 502, 503, 504, and 505 be demonstrated separately on the building plans.
The “prescriptive worksheet approach” is component oriented and is the most straightforward method of demonstrating compliance with the code. It includes tables with specific values that a particular building component must meet. This procedure is the fastest and easiest ways to demonstrate compliance. The prescriptive requirements in turn are also the most stringent and least flexible of the compliance approaches.
