This course provides an overview of how architectural and mechanical design choices can have a significant impact on certain building performance parameters, which can either help or hinder compliance as well as impact overall cost. This course will help builders understand how they can explain to team members and clients the basic considerations for designing and building to the BC Energy Step Code (BCESC) Step 3 and beyond, including considerations for future climate readiness, market expectations, potential cost implications, diverse building types, and future code readiness. This course will also help builders assess qualitatively a building’s likelihood of meeting various performance requirements of the BCESC based on its design elements.
This course contains 9 interactive micro-lessons addressing Module 2: Meeting the BC Energy Step Code by Design.
