FENBC Updates - November 1, 2018

FENBC Industry Conference 2018 was a great success.

We had a great program featuring discussions on the Flexibility Provision in the City of Vancouver, updates from the Fenestration Canada on the new Fenestration Installation Certification Program and an update on the Canadian Methodology for Window U-Values in Passive House Buildings. The sessions continued with a presentation on Code Compliant Fire-Rated Glazing Options in Canada and an update on the BC Energy Efficiency Act. Our Keynote Lunch speaker discussed Cannabis in the Workplace.   The afternoon sessions included: Complying with the CSA A500 and Selecting Windows for the Step Code.
Our Keynote Breakfast session “The Code Talkers” will be a reoccurring panel session at all our conferences.  This session gives the audience an opportunity to discuss any and all code related issues that the entire fenestration industry is facing. The focus of this session is to learn what the industry is facing in understanding code interpretation and if there are solutions based on the knowledge in the audience and on the panel. If there are no solutions or answers provided then the technical committee will develop a task group to look into the question further with the goal of finding a solution that all of the groups involved can accept.
Thank you to our Sponsors for this conference.
