Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia – City of Vancouver’s New ASHRAE 90.1 – 2007 Documentation Process

On December 1, 2012, the City of Vancouver introduced a new ASHRAE 90.1 documentation process meant to improve building quality assurance, data gathering, and permit process implementation. This new process comes into effect on March 1, 2012. This half-day seminar will demonstrate the new ASHRAE 90.1 – 2007 documentation process. As the new standard is referenced by the Vancouver Building By-law and requires input from all disciplines, this seminar will be suitable for all consultant groups including architects, engineers, building envelope specialists, building performance modelers, coordinating registered professionals, certified professionals, and developers. This seminar demonstrates the new process by actively working through the software and documentation, revealing its abilities and options including links to the ASHRAE-generated compliance forms. These secondary forms, covering sections 5 through 11 of the ASHRAE standard, are included in the presentation and will be reviewed and demonstrated. In addition, administrative roles such as that of the CRP and CP will be presented. The focus of this seminar is to provide a clear understanding of the individual roles and their respective deliverables, allowing design teams to seamlessly incorporate the new process within the building permit application stage of their projects. Presenters include M. Greg McCall (City of Vancouver), Maura Gatensby (Architectural Institute of British Columbia), Graham Finch (RDH Building Engineering Ltd.), Jean-Sebastien Ratte (Stantec), and Ali Nazari (Cobalt Engineering). It takes place Wednesday, April 11, 2012 from 12:00 noon – 4:30 p.m. in Vancouver (venue to be determined). Plan on attending this seminar by registering online at
