Online course: Understanding building codes

Passive House Canada is offering a great sounding 2-hour online webinar in Understanding Building Codes on August 27th (9-11am PDT).

“This 2-hour, online course will compare and contrast the proposed National Energy Code with the BC Energy Step Code, Passive House, and others. With proposed changes coming nationally and provincially, it will be important for all industry professionals and builders to understand the key differences between the standards and the metrics that they reference.

Each of the standards will drive us to design and build in different ways. Some of our traditional design and construction strategies may need updates or rethinking to ensure homes are passing the new code minimums. In particular, the expected outcomes of each standard must be understood to allow clients and government to make better choices.”

With no prerequisites or advance knowledge needed, this course is suitable for anyone. It’s recommended for:

  • Passive House Designers and Consultants
  • Builders, architects, architectural technologist and engineers
  • Building officials and planners
  • Trades
  • Students
  • Anyone interested in the subject
