Large Building Energy Web Page

The City of Vancouver has launched a new web page intended to centralize information pertaining to energy requirements for large buildings, typically Part 3 and Part 9 (non-residential), including dates for the phased implementation of the 2014 Vancouver Building By-Law. For new construction projects, the site provides information on referenced energy standards (ASHRAE 90.1, NECB 2011) and city-specific changes/additions to these standards, as well as links to the associated forms and checklists required for building permit application. For existing buildings, the site also provides information on the new energy trigger requirements for building permit applications. The new energy web page also includes tutorials outlining the process, documents and procedures necessary to complete the energy components of the building permit application.
