New Energy Provisions in the BC Building Code WEBINAR

On December 19th 2014, the BC Building Code will introduce significant energy efficiency requirements for houses and small buildings.

Register for a session November 18th at 9am or November 20th at 1pm.

CHBA BC is delivering a three-hour webinar that will provide an overview of the key changes to prepare builders and designers to conform to Code requirements with minimum disruption to their projects.

Key changes include a new Section of the BC Building Code (9.36: Energy Efficiency) that introduces new requirements for:

  • Insulation requiring effective insulation levels (as opposed to nominal R-values);
  • Three options for showing code compliance (prescriptive, trade-offs, and performance);
  • New ventilation requirements;
  • New radon rough-in requirements
