HPO Bulletin on Fenestration Energy Performance

The Homeowner Protection Office, Branch of BC Housing, has issued a new bulletin on “Fenestration Energy Performance” for residential buildings, including information on energy performance requirements for windows, glazed doors and skylights, and a “roadmap” for compliance. Energy performance requirements for fenestration have become more stringent in recent years. This bulletin (Builder Insight #9) will help clarify BC Building Code and BC Energy Efficiency Act requirements and the supporting standards. Note: this is of high importance to architects; AIBC members are encouraged to read it. To access this bulletin as well as past issues of Builder Insight, go to http://www.hpo.bc.ca/builder-insight-bulletins.
