Vancouver Building Bylaw Submission

Earlier this year, the City of Vancouver announced proposed changes to the Vancouver Building Bylaw, inviting key industry and professional organizations as well as individuals to provide feedback and commentary. Major areas that are being addressed include incorporating changes made in the National Building Code of Canada 2010, new measures for environmental protection and resource conservation, and greater flexibility of use of ground floor tenant spaces. In crafting its formal response, the AIBC gathered commentary and feedback from its Regulatory Coordination Committee as well as from experienced members outside of that committee. The AIBC’s resulting submission expressed general support for the changes proposed while offering occasional suggestions and cautionary notes with regard to specific proposals under consideration. The institute also expressed appreciation for the opportunity to be part of the review process for regulation having a significant impact on the profession.
