Vancouver Building Bylaws

The effective date of the City of Vancouver Building By-Law has been extended to July 1, 2014.  Only building permits submitted after June 30 will be required to comply with the new Building By-Law which includes updates to windows, insulation, heating systems, and accessibility.   


Mark Hartman of the City of Vancouver confirmed this information in an email announcement about the 2014 VBBL energy requirements for one and two family homes (new construction), which also summarizes the window, sliding door and skylight energy performance requirements.
