Teleworkshop on Greening the Building Code - December 11th, 2007

Start: Dec 11 2007 - 12:00pm

Dec 11 2007 - 1:00pm
The BCSEA December Energy Solutions Teleworkshop will be held Tuesday, December 11th, from 12 noon-1pm.

The topic this month is Greening the BC Building Code.

The BC government is proposing to add new green requirements to the BC Building Code and is currently soliciting feedback on these changes. The deadline for providing input is December 21.

The code revisions focus on:
  •  
    • Energy Efficiency Requirements for Single Family Houses and Smaller Multi-Family Residential, Commercial and Industrial Buildings;
    • Energy Efficiency Requirements for High-Rise Multi-Family Residential Buildings and Larger Industrial, Commercial and Institutional Buildings;
    • Water-Efficiency Requirements.
Guest presenters will be Trudy Rotgans, Manager of Building and Safety Policy and Matt Zipchen of Lighthouse Sustainable Building Centre, who provided the research for the water efficiency and materials emissions components of the revisions.

The Code change proposals and instructions on how to comment are at:

The core of the changes are in Section 10:
