New Energy Provisions in the BC Building Code – Webinar

On December 19th 2014, the BC Building Code introduced significant energy efficiency requirements for houses and small buildings (Part 9 buildings). 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;
  • HVAC equipment & system design changes;
  • New radon rough-in requirements.

This three-hour webinar will provide an overview of the key changes to prepare builders and designers to understand and conform to Code requirements with minimum disruption to their projects.
