The Province of British Columbia has adopted the BC Energy Step Code as a series of amendments to the Building Act and the Local Government Act. The standard consists of a series of steps, representing increasing levels of energy-efficiency performance. By adopting one or more steps of the standard, local governments and builders can increase building performance requirements in their communities.
The BC Energy Step Code requires buildings to achieve specific levels of performance in three key metrics: Thermal Energy Demand Intensity (TEDI), Total Energy Use Intensity (TEUI) and Air Tightness. At the development permit stage, designers will be required to use energy modelling to confirm that the proposed development meets the relevant community’s BC Energy Step Code performance targets. We have successfully completed over 100 energy models and can prepare an energy model to show compliance with the Step Code.
