The Building and Safety Standards Branch recently issued an information bulletin providing more information about the previously announced changes to the 2012 BC Building code that add energy performance requirements to both Part 3 and Part 9 buildings. The Part 3 requirements apply for permits taken on or after December 20, 2013. The Part 9 requirements apply for permits taken on or after December 19, 2014.
Association members interested in engaging with these issues may be interested in joining one or both of these FEN-BC task groups: the Commercial Energy Issues Task Group and the Residential Energy Issues Task Group. For more information, contact Zana Gordon.
