The District of Saanich and City of Victoria are gathering builder industry and key stakeholder feedback on a proposed approach for implementation of the BC Energy Step Code and they want your input.
The Step Code is a provincial building regulation that applies to new residential, multi-unit and commercial construction. It provides a voluntary roadmap that establishes progressive performance steps in energy efficiency for new buildings from the current BC Building Code level to net zero energy ready buildings by 2032.
