The Mountain View Green Building Code (MVGBC) amends the State-mandated California Green Building Code (CalGreen) to include local green building standards and requirements for private development. The MVGBC applies green building requirements per building type and threshold to new construction, residential additions and commercial/industrial tenant improvements and includes energy efficiency standards that exceed the 2008 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
If you are planning to submit an application for a construction permit in the City of Mountain View click the applicable code year and confirm whether or not you will be required to meet the MVGBC requirements. For questions contact the Building Division at (650) 903-6313.
