Step Code

The BC Energy Step Code is a provincial regulation which is currently a voluntary compliance path within the BC Building Code. It established a set of progressive performance steps for new construction projects to support builders to transition from the current energy efficiency requirement in the BC Building Code to the target of net-zero-energy-ready building by 2021.
