This report was updated on Sept. 17, 2019 with new features. Use that version unless your project was started with the initial version. Both copies are included for convenience.

Updated BCBC 2018 Version

The updated version can be used for any Part 9 residential building. In addition, it provides guidance for how to model and test attached ground-oriented residential buildings that are not considered multi-unit residential buildings under the EnerGuide Rating System. These include semi-detached and attached buildings such as side-by-side duplexes, triplexes, townhomes and row homes. There are no separate PDFs of the Pre-Construction or As-Built reports as the report calculator automatically generates them.
