VRCA Competitive Edge Series – The ICI Sector, Step Code, and Vancouver’s Zero Emissions Building Plan

May 27 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

From the event website:

The Competitive Edge – Growing Your Business in the Future of Construction

Construction is undeniably changing. From significant regulatory changes over the past few years, such as the BC Energy Step Code, to industry trends towards greater digitalization and industrialization. Many challenges – like an aging workforce – and opportunities – like increased urban density and infrastructure development – lay on the horizon.

Recognizing the unique intersection of policy, trends, and the potential for leadership, the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC), and the Zero Emissions Building Exchange (ZEBx) are partnering on a series of webinars for leaders in the construction industry. For more details on this six-part series click here.

You are invited to attend the second session of the ‘Competitive Edge’ series. This session will focus on one of the single largest changes in BC’s building regulatory environment: the move to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases (GHGs) in new construction. The two most important pieces of policy in that regard will be explained and explored with regulatory experts and people working on the leading edge of practice.

Key points of discussion will include:

  • Overview of the BC Energy Step Code as it pertains to the ICI sector;
  • Fundamentals of the Vancouver Zero Emission Building Plan;
  • The differences between the two; and
  • Resources for builders



Please note that registrants of this session will also receive access to the recording of the first webinar that took place on April 29, Competitive Edge Series – Maintaining Competitiveness in Complex Times.
