The new 2018 BC Building and Plumbing Codes became effective December 10, 2018, and apply to building permits applied for on or after that date.
Engineers and Geoscientists BC and the Architectural Institute of BC are coordinating efforts to provide training on BC Building Code changes. The update seminars will be offered on 2 days and participants may participate in either or both days.
This seminar will focus on the updates on the following parts of the 2018 BC Building and Plumbing Codes:
- Part 4: Structural Design
- Part 5: Environmental Separation
- Part 6: Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning
- Part 7: Plumbing Services
- Part 10: Energy Efficiency
Part 8 (Safety Measures at Construction and Demolition Sites) will not be addressed.
Part 9 (Housing and Small Buildings) has been covered well by others such as BOABC and BC Housing, and therefore will not be included in these seminars.
The seminars will focus on the major changes to the code and how these changes affect the practice of both engineers and architects. Experts in the various Parts of the code will present, and be available for questions.
Register for the Update on the 2018 BC Building Code: Parts 1-3 seminar scheduled on February 22, 2019.
