This is a recorded webinar converted to online format and is the compressed version of the CHBA BC approved webinar by the same presenters, Mark Bernhardt, Bernhardt Contracting and Joe Hart, Icon Homes and President of CHBA BC.
This course will take a deeper dive into some of the BC Energy Step Code metrics and how to achieve them through design and building techniques to minimize extra cost. Using real world examples from local climates, we will examine why some designs fail where others pass easily. This session is geared towards building and design professionals. Instruction will assume a basic understanding of the BC Energy Step Code.
Key points include:
- Increase familiarity with performance-based Building Code compliance
- Demonstrate deeper understanding of the Energy Step Code metrics
- Understand practical design and construction techniques that will improve energy performance and lower costs
- Apply cost effective strategies to current and existing designs, and be able to articulate the benefits to clients or design professionals
