Effective April 7, 2017, the BC Energy Step Code has been introduced as an amendment to the 2012 BC Building Code (BCBC). The BC Energy Step Code, introduced as a new standard under the Code, establishes a set of voluntary incremental energy-performance targets for new buildings (via new Subsections 9.36.6. and 10.2.3. of Division B) that spans requirements in the BC Building Code to net-zero energy ready buildings. The new standard is a tool designed to help both government and industry chart a course to a future in which all new construction across the province is "net-zero energy ready" by 2032, as identified in the BC Climate Leadership Plan.

On December 15, 2017, section 5 of the Building Act will require local governments wishing to set higher energy-efficiency standards than those in the BCBC to do so using the BC Energy Step Code, while current local government bylaws with technical building requirements will be rendered of no legal force. The Energy Step Code will apply to new residential construction province-wide (Part 9), and to multi-unit and commercial buildings (Part 3) in the Lower Mainland, on southern Vancouver Island, and in the south Okanagan. It enables building owners to voluntarily build to the requirements in the BC Energy Step Code or be incentivized or required to do so under local government bylaws and policies.

Seminar Outline

  • Overview of the Energy Step Code,
  • Overview of the Development of Engineers and Geoscientists BC/Architectural Institute of BC Professional Practice Guidelines – Whole Building Energy Modelling Services,

  • The application of the Energy Step Code on the municipal level including case studies/examples.

Audience

  • Building Professionals (electrical, mechanical, plumbing, building envelope disciplines), Architects, and Licensees,
  • Local government (building officials, planning staff), and
  • Stakeholders from building industries (builders, contractors etc.)
